It has seen many of this century's great performers on its stage, including Sarah Bernhardt, Carlos Montoya, Mikhail Baryshnikov, Luciano Pavarotti, National Ballet of Canada, Crosby, Stills, and Nash and Tony Bennett. The Royal retains its original Rococo/Renaissance Revival style decor. It is Vancouver Island's premiere venue for touring attractions, and home to the Victoria Symphony and Pacific Opera Victoria.
