Went to see Jane MacDonald in concert - which was fab and at the end of the show the audience were all on their feet dancing and singing along.

It is worth a visit as the biulding is amazing and though under renavation it is very quiet and from the outside it was hard to tell whether it was open or not - once inside it was lovley with live music playing at luch time in the bar with staff very helpful and friendly and vey clean toilets. The cafe was dissappointing - very expensive and service was appalling.

I cannot recommend the Opera House enough. It's a wonderful old theatre decorated in the Art Deco style and is the largest theatre in the UK. The entrances and lobbies are huge and atmospheric with plenty of room which is unusual to find in most theatres. It was also great to get a lovely coffee and pre-theatre snack in the totally gorgeous Mazzei Coffee Lounge! The auditorium is huge and there's pelnty of leg room. It really was a special theatre to be in. We went to see Russell Watson which was a special show. Several other similar artistes are booked to appear in 2011 but it would be great to have more shows of this quality at this famous old Opera House as we would be back for more and more!! Highly recommended theatre!!!
