The Emery Theatre, 1112 Walnut Street, Cincinnati, OH 45202

The Emery Theatre is a historic, acoustically-perfect theatre (a replica of New York’s Carnegie Hall), in which Contemporary Dance Theater appeared, years ago.

Today, a non-profit organization, The Requiem Project, is working to restore the 1911 theatre. Celebrate Contemporary Dance Theater amongst the architectural magnificence, right on The Emery’s Stage!
