History of the Grand Opera House

We invite you to join us for an informal talk about the fascinating history of Belfast’s Grand Opera House, from its opening performance in December 1895 to the completion of its £12.2 million restoration this year.

Hear about the world-famous stars who have performed here from Laurence Oliver to Darcey Bussell and learn the secrets of the auditorium’s beautiful Oriental design as well as the near disasters that this stunning building has faced. After the talk ticket holders will also have the chance to explore the Theatre’s new Heritage Exhibition, an interactive and engaging exploration of the people and events that have made the Grand Opera House one of the jewels in the crown of Northern Ireland’s arts scene.

Places must be booked in advance.
