WELCOME

Construction of this majestic theatre commenced in 1899. Since this date the Opera House has gained national and international recognition for its beautiful architecture and its great acoustics. The Opera House is used regularly by touring artists and shows as well as by local productions, fashion shows and local dance groups.

We look forward to welcoming you to a show very soon.
