Tours of the newly restored Theatre
The Grand Opera House
Great Victoria Street
With a newly restored auditorium and a stunningly transformed foyer, the Grand Opera House is looking more beautiful than ever!
Due to popular demand, tours of the Theatre will return on selected dates in August 2022.
Led by a knowledgeable Customer Experience Assistant, Theatre Tours give you the chance to see the incredible results of the restoration of this iconic building, and explore the fascinating story of the Grand Opera House’s rich and colourful 126 year history from 1895 to the present day. Follow in the footsteps of Charlie Chaplin, Luciano Pavarotti and Darcey Bussell by walking out onto the iconic stage; see what happens behind the scenes during a show, and explore the symbolism and meaning of the gods, elephants, stars and other stunning architectural features inside Frank Matcham’s auditorium.
Theatre Tours last for between 45 minutes and an hour, and tour participants also have exclusive access to the heritage exhibition for 30 minutes before their tour start time.
