Purchased by the city as part of the Lexington Center, with financial aid provided by The Opera House Fund, Inc., this historic structure was saved from the wrecking ball and reconstruction and renovation began in 1975.
After the Opera House reopened in 1976, the Opera House Fund, Inc., an esteemed group of philanthropists under the leadership of the late W.T. Young and George and Linda Carey, began to provide financial support to local performing arts groups that use the facility for their productions. The vision continues to this day and beneficiaries over the past three decades include Lexington Children's Theatre, Kentucky Ballet Theatre, Lexington Ballet Company, Lexington Philharmonic, UK Opera Theatre, School for Creative and Performing Arts, Central Kentucky Youth Orchestra and many others. Celebrating over 120 years of service, the current utilization of the Opera House is greater now than it has ever been.
