HER MAJESTY'S THEATRE TO REOPEN 13 SEPTEMBER
Her Majesty’s Ballarat will re-open on Friday 13 September for the Royal South Street Society’s prestigious Aria competition. Established in 1924, Australia’s oldest and most renowned prize for emerging classical singers will be the first event to return to the restored historic raked stage at Her Majesty’s Ballarat since the theatre was closed for extensive restorations in late 2017. $5.3 million was allocated for the restorative works at Her Majesty’s as soon as the safety issue was identified in 2017. These works have been supported by a $2 million grant under the Victorian Government’s Living Heritage Program.
