More State Theatre - some info

(viewed 515 times)
I loved the State Theatre so much I went home and on to Google to find out more. There is more info and pics at
http://www.statetheatre.com.au/about_history.html if you are really interested!

State Theatre is without doubt a truly magnificent and unique building.

Its importance has been recognised by The National Trust of Australia that has classified it as "a building of great historical significance and high architectural quality, the preservation of which is regarded as essential to our heritage".

The inspirational design of architect Henry White fuses eclectic elements of Gothic, Italian and Art deco design to produce an exquisite theatre, which can truly be described as a "Palace of Dreams".

The State Theatre palatial interiors feature artworks and fixtures of rare significance. The Dress Circle gallery houses artworks by significant Australian artists including William Dobell and Charles Wheeler whilst located in auditorium, the Koh-I-Nor cut crystal chandelier is the second largest on earth, weighing over four tonnes.

What a great night! What great music that gets right into you. An overwhelming image of the three remaining "Grandfathers of Cuban Music" onstage in the spotlight at the close of the show. Thinking of you Edwina.

The text generation grew up not remembering a time when the internet wasn't
connected. My son now counts his pocket money using his phone. Something is
definitely changing.
