Theatre of Dreams: the new Marlowe

Tuesday evening’s gala opening concert at the new Marlowe Theatre celebrated the completion of a two-year refurbishment of the theatre, at the heart of Canterbury city. The star-studded evening saw the theatre’s official opening by the Duke of Wessex, and a performance with the Philharmonia Orchestra under David Parry, together with illustrious bass, Sir John Tomlinson. It also saw the University’s Director of Music, Susan Wanless, in the audience: here’s her reaction to the new building.

On Tuesday evening I went to the grand gala opening of the new Marlowe Theatre. I was bowled over by the building, both the foyer, bars and cafe, and the theatre itself, which is spectacular.

This is an amazingly exciting moment in the cultural life of Canterbury and The Philharmonia Orchestra has become the Marlowe’s Orchestra in Residence, with four concerts this coming season – so go and experience it for yourselves!
