Peabody Opera House in St. Louis gets a jolt from electrical renovations

Peabody Opera House in St. Louis gets a jolt from electrical renovations


By Leslie Streicher, Associate Editor | November 10, 2011

St. Louis’s historic Peabody Opera House is still clad in its original 76-year-old Art Deco façade, but electrical wiring and lighting controls throughout hallways, banquet rooms and stages are brand new. St. Louis-based Kaiser Electric provided the $6.5 million electrical and lighting overhauls, installing occupancy sensors in the building’s back-of-house areas and using energy-efficient fluorescent lighting. Formerly named the Kiel Opera House, the Peabody also underwent larger renovations to the main theater, seating 3,200 people, and smaller theaters, seating up to 500. Optimus Development, Paris Corp., and KAI Design and Build formed the rest of the Building Team.
