The Grand Theatre & Opera House opened in 1878 and is Leeds' largest theatre. It's a listed Victorian building and was considered as an achievement in Victorian theatre building.
The theatre offers a wide range of entertainment including opera, ballet, musicals and plays. The theatre has The Howard Assembly Rooms where smaller scale concerts and entertainment are performed.
Opera North and Northern Ballet, Leeds based companies, host most of the operas and ballets respectively at The Grand and also some musicals that are on tour nationally and internationally stop in Leeds as well.
This was the theatre where I developed my love for opera and musicals and I'm glad of The Grand!
On 12th September 2010, I was privleged to explore the Grand including its auditorium and the backstage when the theatre opened its doors to the public to celebrate Heritage Open Days (national and internationally). I took a lot of photos and you can see the traveloge.
I did a tour of The Grand Theatre in July 2012 and please see my traveloge.
The Grand is hosting "The Phantom of the Opera" in August & September 2012!!!!
Please check out my travelogue of Heritage Open Day 2012 when I visited the venue.
