Grand Opera House, Belfast

Belfast's Grand Opera House is one of the city's most recognisable, and most charming, buildings. It is located on Glengall Street, close to two other Belfast landmarks -- the Crown Liquor Saloon and the Europa Hotel. Frank Matcham, a famous theatre architect, conceived this Victorian masterpiece in 1894. The Grand Opera House was meticulously restored during the late 1970s and remains Northern Ireland's most prominent theatre. Today, the venue is host to top-class musicals, operas, comedians, plays and concerts.

Claim to Fame

The Grand Opera HOuse was the setting for Van Morrison’s Live Album, recorded here in 1984.
