Built in 1934, and after being closed for nearly 20 years, the St. Louis landmark known formerly as Kiel Opera House underwent construction with plans to reopen as the Peabody Opera House in fall of 2011. This venue will host many events from Broadway shows and contemporary music artists to local theater groups.
An identity to convey the building’s history and, at the same time, appeal to today’s audiences.
The building is a beautiful structure built in a Beaux Arts/Art Deco style. To reflect its history, we used details from the building as design elements, including one of the limestone bears that flank the main entrance which have always been associated with the building.
