Since opening on Christmas Eve in 1904, His Majesty’s Theatre has become one of Western Australia’s most-loved heritage icons.
A stunning example of Edwardian era architecture, the building is the design masterpiece of architect William Wolfe and contractor Gustav Liebe, who constructed the theatre for Perth businessman and one-time Lord Mayor of Perth, Thomas G Molloy.
Named after the reigning British monarch of 1904, King Edward VII, it is believed to be the only remaining working Edwardian theatre in Australia, and is one of only two remaining His Majesty’s Theatre’s in the world.
Over its life, the theatre has hosted large-scale musicals, ballet, opera, Shakespearean plays and many other events.
His Majesty’s Theatre forms some of the most important cultural fabric of Western Australia and is proud to be the home of the West Australian Ballet and West Australian Opera companies.
