Something Old, Something New

The Lakeport Opera House Performance & Event Center

It’s been decades since Lakeport’s historic opera house was closed. But, after months of restoration, The Opera House – first opened in 1882 – is reopening! Not content to merely restore this fantastic venue, The Opera House now boasts contemporary elements that make it the perfect venue for musical performances, community events, weddings, and other private gatherings.

Once a mainstay of Laconia’s Lakeport community, The historic Opera House is set to be once again center stage for all of New Hampshire’s Lakes Region.

A True Town Square

Connect With the Community to Learn, Share & Discuss

Historically, The Opera House served as a centerpiece of the community, making this fully restored landmark ideal to serve as the Lakes Region’s “public square.” Borrowing from Thomas Jefferson, we believe the American government is not by the majority, but by the majority who participates.

The Laconia Daily Sun, along with members of the local business community, will host a series of public events in Laconia aimed at building civic dialogue, helping those with opposing views have meaningful conversations, and ultimately, lead to more participation in our Democracy.
