The Cairns Civic Theatre can be restored to be the pride of Cairns like La Scala is to Milan—– Restoring the glory to La Scala

The three year refurbishment of La Scala is nearing its end and the contractors plan to hand over the famous opera house, fit for rehearsals to begin, at the end of October.

Air conditioning, fire sprinklers and new security equipment are still being installed.

Dust is everywhere. The interior of the famous horseshoe shaped auditorium is shrouded in plastic sheeting as restorers touch up the gilt decorations and adjust the candelabra.

Plush covered handrails that have been stripped from the boxes lie ready to be carted away. Newly revealed Venetian marble floors from the original building are being buffed and polished.
