The Royal Theatre

by hwilde on November 4, 2010

The Royal Theatre has been a premiere venue for entertainment in Victoria since it opened in 1913.  This popular concert hall has and continues to host innumerable diverse productions.

When you enter the lush rococo/renaissance revival interior and sink into one of the 1,434 comfy seats, you will feel an anticipatory thrill, and then settle in to enjoy an evening of quality entertainment.

The Royal Theatre is home to:

  • The Victoria Symphony, and
  • Pacific Opera Victoria.

It is also a receiving house that regularly books touring acts and local companies such as Ballet Victoria and Dance Victoria.

Many world class performers have graced the stage at The Royal Theatre, including:

  • Sarah Bernhardt;
  • Carlos Montoya;
  • Mikhail Baryshnikov;
  • Luciano Pavarotti;
  • National Ballet of Canada;
  • Crosby, Stills, and Nash, and
  • Tony Bennett.

The Royal Theatre is operated by The Royal and McPherson Theatres Society (RMTS) under an agreement with the Capital Regional District (CRD).  This not for profit organization manages all aspects of both venues.  It’s Mission Statement:  “To enrich the cultural life of the region, by operating and maintaining the civic theatres of the CRD”.

For close to a century, the Royal Theatre has been presenting diverse, quality entertainment in a beautiful setting to Victoria’s residents and visitors and it continues to be a treasured landmark in Victoria’s cultural life.

Victoria BC Realtor Heather Wilde was raised and educated in Winnipeg. After graduating from both the University of Winnipeg (Bachelor of Arts) and the University of Manitoba Faculty of Education she relocated to British Columbia in 1975. Her career in real estate has been successful due to her commitment to and genuine pleasure at helping families find homes and properties for sale in Victoria BC. Heather was licensed as a Realtor in 1976 and since then has worked hard to achieve a high standard of performance; consistently attaining a Victoria Real Estate Board MLS Gold Award. If you ask Heather, she will undoubtedly say that although it’s nice to be recognized in the industry through performance awards, what really drives her success is the relationships and friendships she forges with the families that she helps. Many of Heather’s former clients have become close friends, and many of her close friends have become clients. That says a lot about her dedication to providing professional service while maintaining a friendly rapport with clients. Heather loves to travel the world (preferrably on a cruise ship!) and also enjoys tennis and bridge during her spare time. As of January 2014, Heather has retired from her real estate career.
