Event description

Description

Get the insider look at America’s oldest performing arts institution, from a historic Opera House to a restored theater that still has its formerly abandoned charm.

Join New York Adventure Club for an exclusive, special access tour of the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM), America’s oldest performing arts institution (1861), and thriving urban arts complex, presenting performing arts, media, and film.

Led by the BAM Archives Manager, our special experience will include:

  • An in-depth overview of BAM and the facility’s rich history and story
  • A peek at historic photos and newspaper clippings throughout the centuries
  • A walk around the Peter Jay Sharp Building (1907), which features a 5,000 square foot grand foyer, 2,200 seat grand opera house, a concert hall, and former ballroom.
  • A visit to the Harvey Theater (1904); originally known as The Majestic, it sat abandoned for nearly two decades before an award-winning renovation in 1987 that preserved original architectural elements as well as its pre-restored look.

If we’re lucky, we’ll even get access to the main stage of the Opera House!
