Then and Now

Manchester Opera House

Welcome to Then and Now, where each week we compare images of Manchester streets, landmarks and buildings from bygone days with how they look now.

This week our main image shows Manchester’s Opera House, which has welcomed a rich variety of stars to the city since its grand opening in 1912.

Vivien Leigh, Sir Laurence Olivier, Noel Coward, Dame Maggie Smith, Paul Nicholas, Bonnie Langford and Lynn Redgrave are just some of the household names who’ve appeared there.

The Quay Street building certainly holds a special place in the memory of Mancunians along with another familiar landmark - its sister venue the Palace Theatre.
