Milton Berle, Cab Calloway, and Frank Sinatra are just a few of the legendary names in showbiz that once graced the stage of Poughkeepsie's Bardavon Opera House. This video takes us from it's founding through the many restorations to present day.
Although the theater is currently closed due to Covid 19, the Bardavon will host a virtual concert with the Hudson Valley Philharmonic on Saturday 7/18. Live acts are not expected to return until 2021.
