Since 1903, the Cutler Majestic Theatre at Emerson College has been providing year round cultural programs to both college students and visitors. The historic college located in the Theater District owns and operates the theater, which offers a wide-range of performances that include opera (La Traviatta; Madama Butterfly), theater (Divas by Boston’s Gay Men’s Chorus), dance (Stomp) and music (New England Conservatory). Inside, you will find beautiful murals painted by New York artist William de Leftwich Dodge, whose works can also be found on display at the Library of Congress and Boston Public Library.
The theater is listed in both the Massachusetts and National Registers of Historic Places, and has also earned the prominent status as a Boston Historic Landmark. Over the past few years, it underwent some renovations that were approved by the Boston Landmarks Commission.
The Majestic has both historically appropriate stage systems and the most modern technologies for stage and video productions, which is why it is known around town as being a 21st century theater inside a 19th century building.
