Ornamental, expressive and much-loved, this iconic Edwardian building, the only of this era still standing in New Zealand, has long served as one of Christchurch’s pre-eminent performance venues. The grand marble staircase, plush Arts & Crafts style carpets, chandeliers and rich wallpapering make for an imaginative, sumptuous interior. Royal boxes are regal proof of the theatre’s long history, while the careful restoration of the hand-painted canvas ceiling - the dome adorned with scenes from a Midsummer Night’s Dream - is a triumph. All these elements combine to create a sense of opulence and theatre.
