The Theatre Royal originally opened in 1867. It is the oldest theatre in Glasgow and the longest running in Scotland. Owned by The Scottish Opera since 1974, the theatre is used for operatics; ballet performances; pantomimes and a variety of theatrical productions.
A total transformation of the Theatre Royal in Glasgow has taken place with the help of our Mosaico range of luminaires. As well as ensuring that the energy-saving lighting solution complemented the new scheme, the brief was also to ensure that the new lighting succeeded in showcasing the architectural design of the venue whilst also affording the necessary flexibility for its varied usage.
It was a complete restyle of the building: a landmark entrance hall; spacious foyer; the new Vanilla Black café; improved bar areas and toilets along with a modern box office with additional terminals. A brand new viewing gallery has also been constructed to offer a unique view of the auditorium and the addition of a roof terrace provides a stunning vista across the city.
We worked to the project aiming to ensure not only a sustainable lighting solution of energy-efficient LEDs and Metal Halide fixtures but also one that would set off the new architectural concept to maximum advantage.
