Details of Boston Opera House and the Ticket Luck value
Opera singing could add a new dimension to your life. The Boston Opera House is based on two Boston, Massachusetts theatres. The first of them was inaugurated in 1909 and was brought down in 1958. The second of them used to operate as a movie theater being run from 1980 to 1991 and was operated by the Opera Company of Boston. The theater underwent grave damage when it was closed and then it was completely renovated and reopened in 2004. The first Boston Opera House was situated on Huntington Ave in Boston, Massachusetts which was just two blocks from Boston Symphony Hall.
The first theater was started being constructed in 1901 but some financial constraints lent the construction to stop. Bostonian millionaire Eben Jordan then took up the responsibility of contributing some essential funds to finish the work and paved way for the newly formed Boston Opera Company (BOC) under the management of impresario Henry Russell. Finally, the opera house opened in November 1909 and the show La Gioconda by the BOC was offered to the public's delight. Lillian Nordica was cast in the title role and Louise Homer appeared as La Cieca. The theater was reckoned as a grand venue on its opening. The BOC met with financial losses in 1915 rendering the venue to be employed by other local opera entities. Apart from this, the Metropolitan Opera also paid regular visits here.
The Great Depression and the World War II, made the venue turn into disuse and disrepair. The Opera House was declared unsafe and marked for demolition by the Boston Redevelopment Authority in 1957. The building was finally gutted in 1958 but it was not easy to demolish.
The Boston Opera House was originally constructed as a grand movie theater in the Keith-Albee chain. The theater opened in October 1928 and presented first run films accompanied by live vaudeville. The ownership of the theater was with RKO Theatres only by 1929, and showed only films. It was listed as a leading Boston movie showcase through the 1950s. The Sack Theaters company took over the ownership of the theater in the 1970s and ran it under the name Savoy Theater. There were two screens being operated in the house, a smaller one in the stage space and one in the original auditorium.
Then in 1980, the screening of films was stopped altogether and the opera director Sarah Caldwell's Opera Company of Boston took over. The opera productions continued for a decade at the house, but then Caldwell's company met with financial losses in 1991 thus closing down. The theater was eventually left in the dark and without funds to maintain.
The Clear Channel Company then agreed to refurbish the theater. It was Mayor Menino whose efforts proved fruitful in refurbishing the Opera House in carefully restoring the place. The Broadway production of The Lion King was finally presented here when the Opera house reopened in July 2004. Since 2005, The Nutcracker which is the Boston Ballet's annual holiday production is being presented at the Boston Opera House.
