Something About the Eagle Opera House

Eagle Opera House

All the World’s a Stage.


I mentioned opera in a recent post and feel compelled to note this year is the 150th anniversary of the opening of Marshall’s Eagle Opera House. We noted its April opening a few years ago:
The first performance was an operetta called "The Naiad Queen". For history buffs, the original entrance to the structure was at 101 South Eagle Street; the entrance was later moved to State Street until January 1890 with another entry area back on Eagle Street [Marshall, 186].
Is there such thing as a naiad king? Let us not be silly. Who has visited the Eagle in Marshall?  When did you last read The Doom of the Haunted Opera to celebrate New Zebedee’s opera house?
