UNESCO World Heritage Lunenburg is the world’s best-preserved, British-colonial fishing village, and the Lunenburg Opera House (LOH) sits at its centre. The cornerstone of the LOH was laid in 1907, with its first performance in January 1909. Over the past decade, the LOH received a no-expenses-spared restoration. The entire exterior was restored with new western red cedar trim and eastern cedar shake––mouldings and knees were meticulously and accurately recreated. The theatre was painstakingly restored and a new stage and sound booth built, while being brought up to code. New three-phase power has been installed enabling the largest and most demanding acts to grace the theatre’s stage. The Lunenburg Opera House is an icon, ready to be fully-utilized for music, theatre, film and events; with a to-be-restored magnificent ballroom that could be anything from a wedding and conference venue to a stunning penthouse with commanding views. The current owner had three goals when he purchased the LOH: to save the building, to bring world-class acts to the stage and to provide year-round economic spin-off for the town. The building has been saved, while the second and third goals are in their infancy. The owner is looking for an individual or group to become the future and long-term stewards of the Lunenburg Opera House. Special consideration will be given to those who share and will continue the vision. Trades will be considered on case-to-case basis.
