Solaire Theater Opens

The new Solaire theater in Manila, which opened in November, has become the first Asian venue in a casino complex to focus on presenting classical music, according to the Philippine Daily Inquirer


On March 28, the theater presented its first concert with the Manila Symphony Orchestra. The theater seats 1,760, contains 12 fully furnished dressing rooms, a large “green room,” multipurpose rehearsal studio, black box performance space, laundry and wardrobe facilities, production spaces and an extensive TV monitor and communications system. This makes it ideal for presenting everything from full-scale opera productions to ballet performances and symphony orchestra concerts.

The orchestra pit is also built on hydraulic lifts. The Solaire Resort and Casino is, according to its website, the first complex to be opened in the Manila Bay Entertainment City project, featuring 18,500 square meters of casino area on two levels.
