Smith Opera House

All Smith Opera House Tour dates are sold out!

While the historic Smith Opera House is a venue where fascinating stories unfold via film and the performing arts, the building itself has its own compelling stories that have shaped the people and culture of Geneva and the Finger Lakes region since 1894.  We invite the public to experience a bit of Smith lore and enjoy its unique architecture and decor via a tour of the theater.
