I posted here many months ago about the Royal Opera House opening a venue in Manchester, its now time for an update.
Manchester City Council have now given permission for a site to found in the city centre- original it was to be outside- this, ideally they say, would be as close as possible to The Palace Theatre on Oxford Street.
SAD2, do you see any sites around town near to your beloved theatre that could be a major opera house site within the next 10 years? Any old buildings that could come down and provide a great location?
The actual Manchester Opera House was looked at but major redevelopment on that site was limited and quickly abandoned. Manchester City council are supposedly very keen to do a lot of cultural redevelopment in the city centers 'cultural quarter'.
A young actress with Noel coward after a dreadful opening night performance said to him 'Well, i knew my lines backwards this morning!'' Noels fast reply was ''Yes dear, and thats exactly how you said them tonight'!'
