Renovation work, estimated to be worth $78m, will soon begin at Kiel Opera House in Missouri, US.
The opera house has been closed since 1991 and features a 3,200-seat main theatre and a number of smaller theatres with capacities ranging from 300 to 500.
The project is being managed by SCP Worldwide. No reopening date has been mentioned yet, according to the Associated Press.
The project has been funded by the sale of state bonds.
