Grand Opera House

Since opening its doors on 23 December 1895, the Grand Opera House has delivered an unrivalled programme of entertainment, playing host to some of the greatest names in theatre and music.

Designed by the prolific theatrical architect Frank Matcham, the theatre was a huge success from the outset, hosting a vibrant programme of opera, drama, pantomime, or the latest London comedy or musical. Northern Ireland’s premier theatre boasts a wide array of popular shows and additional facilities and services such as a restaurant, café bar and venue hire for corporate hospitality, functions & events.

Extended in 2006, the original façade has been joined by a striking addition to Belfast’s skyline, home to a smaller performance space, The Baby Grand, and Luciano’s café bar and restaurant. Situated on the ground floor, the Opera Café Bar is a great place to meet for coffee and a catch up, and serves lunch menu daily from 12pm, whilst a reservation at Luciano’s, will surely add another dimension to your theatre going experience. Bars are located on each floor, with the exception of the Gods level. All bars stock a range of drinks including beer, wine and spirits, as well as tea and coffee. The Box Office is situated in the foyer at the Grand Opera House. Box Office opening hours are Monday to Friday 9am to 8pm, and Saturday 10am to 6pm. Saturday 3pm to 6pm is Counter Sales only. The Box Office is closed on Bank Holidays.
