The Marigny Opera House a non-denominational, neighborhood church of the arts. Our mission as a church is to celebrate the arts as a common spiritual bond among all people. We offer Sunday Musical Meditations and host weekly 12-step meetings in addition to hosting arts, community and religious events. The church is supported by the Marigny Opera House Foundation, a non-profit organization whose mission is to support the work of local performing artists. The Marigny Opera House is occasionally available for a limited number of wedding ceremonies.
The church building was originally Holy Trinity Catholic Church, which was founded in 1847 for German Catholics of the Faubourg Marigny. Constructed in 1853, the church was designed by architect Theodore Giraud. The church was widely admired for the quality of its music. In 1997 the parish was relocated and the building deconsecrated. Scott King and Dave Hurlbert purchased the building  in July 2011, with the vision of restoring the historic building and offering it as a resource to the community, and the building was renamed “The Marigny Opera House.”
