Boston Opera House – Center Of Activity For Boston
So, what else is around the Boston Opera House. Interestingly enough the Boston Opera House is not per se located directly within the “Theatre District” as depicted on many Boston maps and tourist guides. It certainly isn’t far away from other venues such as the Charles Playhouse, Wilbur Theatre, Wang Theatre, or Majestic Theatre. They are all quite close to each other, however one can’t literally see them all lined up next to each other on the street or when walking around.
Boston Opera House is located essentially right smack in the middle of an energetic core of Boston that is becoming livelier by the week and month. Boston Opera House is within a hundred meters or so of the Downtown Crossing T station and just yards from the new Millenium Tower located at Downtown Crossing. This Washington Street corridor is really starting to boom. It is very enjoyable to walk along this corridor and find all sorts of new and interesting restaurants, coffee shoppes, retail outlets, and many other things. This same corridor also includes the T stops along the Orange Line for Chinatown and State.
If a visitor were to walk north on Washington Street from the Boston Opera House they would bump into the State stop on the Orange Line and eventually make their way to historic Faneuil hall and Quincy Market. The map may make it appear as though one needs to drive or take the train from Boston Opera House to Faneuil Hall but that is not the case of one enjoys a nice 5-10 minute walk through rich culture and history.
Moving South from the Boston Opera House a visitor or patron will eventually run into both Chinatown and the Theatre District. The two neighborhoods adjoin each other and are so tightly intertwined walking back and forth between the two is inconsequential. As Boston continues to grow and evolve the Boston Opera House is indeed literally right in the center of it all.

Boston Opera House History and Interesting Facts
The Boston Opera House was originally known as the B.F. Keith Memorial Theatre. Thomas White Lamb designed the original Boston Opera House using a combination of French and Italian styles. Edward Franklin Albee supervised the construction and erection of the theatre and did so in honor of his late partner, Benjamin Franklin Keith.
The first theatre program took place on October 29, 1928. Many local luminaries in and around Boston attended along with the Governor of the Commonwealth and Mayor of The City of Boston. Patrons saw a screening of the feature film “Oh Kay”.
In 1965 Sack Theatres purchased the theatre and they eventually installed another auditorium. Sack Theatres put great effort and investment into restoring the property and renamed it the Savoy Theatre and eventually the Savoy 1&2. This operation continued until 1978 when the theatre was purchased by the Opera Company of Boston.
On August 15, 1979 the Opera Company of Boston acquired full ownership of the theatre and named it the Boston Opera House which is the current name. The Boston Opera House embarked on an epic run hosting the nation’s finest performances. Unfortunately, the theatre began to deteriorate substantially as the costs of running it escalated and utility bills and taxes went unpaid. The company closed the theatre in 1991.
In 1995 the National Trust For Historic Preservation placed the Boston Opera House on its list of the 11 Most Endangered Buildings.
Boston Mayor Thomas Menino helped initiate a process in 2002 that ultimately led to the theatre reopening on June 28, 2004 with The Hard Hat Concert. The restoration reduced the original capacity of 2,900 to 2,677 to increase comfortable seating and restore wonderful sight lines. Many other wonderful upgrades took place as well.
Currently the theatre is thriving under the ownership of Boston Opera House Ventures, LLC. Broadway Across America and the Boston Ballet provide the majority of the performances and the theatre is booked solid for a very long time into the future. A new era of wonderful success and popularity is well underway for a national historic treasure.
Thomas White Lamb was the architect that designed the Boston Opera House. A look back on the history of theatre in America reveals that Thomas White Lamb was likely the most prolific theatre architect of the twentieth century.
Lamb was born in Dundee, Scotland and moved to New York City. In New York City Lamb studied architecture and worked as a building inspector among other places. He is credited with putting his touch on more than 300 theatres worldwide. Given the logistics involved with getting to these locations and the time spent working on them – it is safe to say Lamb spent a very big chunk of his adult life making theatre’s look gorgeous.
Thomas White Lamb tweaked and evolved his style through the 1920’s and even drew inspiration from his brother. The rise of moving pictures and impact from Hindu and Chinese culture also instilled in Lamb the spirit and drive to consistently inject a new angle or modification into his style. One of his largest creations in the second half of the 20’s was the Fox Theatre in San Francisco. During this time Lamb also created the B.F. Keith Memorial Theatre (now known as the Boston Opera House).
