Theatre Royal expansion gets under way
August 6 2012
This will entail construction of a contemporary new entrance housing additional public space on the corner of Cowcaddens Road and Hope Street and offering a new roof garden with views across the city.
Floorspace in the £11.5m project will also be given over to an education suite.
Alex Reedijk, Scottish opera’s general director, said: “Our vision is to open up the theatre to become a social hub – somewhere people can gather with friends for great coffee during the day, enjoy outstanding performances, learn about the performing arts, and discover the wonderful heritage of this beautiful theatre.”
The remodelling work is being led by theatre owners Scottish Opera, who have already raised 85% of the required funding. It should be completed by 2014.
