Teatro Capitol

En estos días, el Capitol Theatre de Sydney es considerado como uno de los mejores teatros del país, pero no siempre fue así. El sitio en el que se encuentra ahora el teatro tiene más de 100 años de historia.

Ubicado en el histórico distrito de Haymarket, el Capitol Theatre comenzó su vida en 1892 como Belmore Markets, que cerró en 1916. El edificio luego se convirtió en un hipódromo diseñado para el circo Wirth Bros. En diez años, el circo se volvió financieramente inviable y el edificio se convirtió nuevamente, esta vez en una sala de cine. Su manifestación como 'palacio de imágenes' se prolongó hasta la década de los 80, cuando estaba previsto su demolición. Afortunadamente, una orden de conservación del Consejo del Patrimonio rescató el teatro y finalmente fue restaurado para crear el teatro lírico de clase mundial que es hoy.
