History

Originally conceived as a Cardiff Opera House, the Wales Millennium Centre (or Canolfan Mileniwm Cymru) became a way to liven up Cardiff's waterfront as a multi-purpose entertainment venue when it opened in 2004. Within it stands the Donald Gordon Theatre, which has hosted numerous touring musicals and plays in the last few years.

Inside Track

The inscription on the building in Welsh says "Creu Gwir Fel Gwydr O Ffwrnais Awen" which means "creating truth like glass from the furnace of inspiration". The English words say "In These Stones Horizons Sing".
