Absolute Royalty-Adelaide’s “Her Majesty’s Theatre” redevelopment is currently underway. First opening its doors as a Tivoli in 1913, the theatre is regarded as one of the finest theatres in Australia. Construction began mid-2019 and is expected to finish in mid-2020. Rondo has provided onsite design assistance for the $66m project, supporting the design and construct environment. The project required the application of seismic solutions and Rondo has worked closely with Contractor, Laser Linings to deliver the desired result.
Rondo overcame service and structural clashes whilst also successfully revamping this historic theatre into a state-of-the-art facility. Laser Linings and Rondo proved to be a well partnered team throughout the build, providing sound design and installation. Considered as an icon of Australia’s theatrical history, Her Majesty’s Theatre is now the sole remaining Tivoli in the country. Hansen Yuncken were awarded the build of this spectacle project, alongside contractor Laser Linings and COX Architecture. The collaboration will aim to modernise the theatre, accommodating contemporary expectations whilst also maintaining its historical background and integrity.
