In complete contrast to The Regal Theatre that I showed a while back, His Majesty's Theatre or 'The Maj' as it's affectionately called by Perthites, is a splendid affair..! Sitting on the corner of Hay and King St. in the city centre, it was built in 1902/04 when Perth was in the grip of the WA gold rush and experiencing a high growth rate. It was then, and still is now I believe, the only Edwardian style theatre in Australia. (The Maj) It's seriously worth clicking the link to see the little slide show of the interior of the theatre that is home to both the WA Ballet and the WA Opera Companies. The importance of The Maj to the cultural fabric of WA has been recognized by it's inclusion in the State Register of Heritage Places and being named as a State Heritage Icon....quite rightly, it has a history that should never be forgotten.....!!
