Trafalgar Entertainment is thrilled with the progress of the Theatre Royal Sydney refurbishment as the stunning new entrance doors are placed into position in preparation to welcome back long-awaited audiences later this year.
The transformation of the entrance and façade of the venue opens up unique views of the magnificent ceiling designed by the Italian structural engineer Pier Luigi Nervi to street level for the very first time.
Located within the MLC Centre precinct at the heart of Sydney’s Central Business District, Theatre Royal Sydney is an important cultural asset for Sydney and NSW and the new glass entrance signifies the window into its cultural world, truly where the city meets the stage.
TE is delighted to be working in partnership with the NSW Government and Dexus, owner and manager of the landmark MLC Centre to enhance Sydney’s cultural landscape. City centres are evolving; the best will have a lively, rich mix of uses, day and night. This pioneering partnership will help to reinvigorate Sydney’s night-time economy, providing new jobs and making it amongst the best places to live, work and visit in the world.
Theatre Royal Sydney will be transformed with international standards to house world class productions from Australia and around the world from major commercial musicals, plays, ballet & live music. TE is collaborating with leading producers and promoters across its industry networks worldwide to establish a diverse programme of first-class theatre productions.
TE’s Joint CEO, Sir Howard Panter, said: “Sydney holds a unique position as producers from all around the globe are circling to be one of the first to have their productions play in the Theatre Royal in 2021. We are currently in talks with producers across Australia, the USA and London, to confirm inspiring productions to relaunch Theatre Royal. We know this activity will play a key role in Sydney’s cultural and economic revival.”
