An exterior view of the under-renovation Peabody Opera House in St. Louis. A grand reopening is planned for Oct. 1.

The St. Louis performance space once known as the Kiel Opera House has been undergoing renovations since July 2010. When it reopens Oct. 1 as the Peabody Opera House, an "opening night gala" is planned, and, starting today, you can buy tickets to be there.

Aretha Franklin and Jay Leno are headlining the event, which will benefit the  John L. Trotter Multiple Sclerosis Center at Barnes-Jewish Hospital and Washington University School of Medicine.
