Overview

On opening in 1914, this theatre was one of the largest of its kind in the Southern hemisphere. It has a lavishly decorated interior, with a domed ceiling and grand circle together with two tiers of boxes. The facility was strengthened and restored in 1977, but retained many original features. The 'grand old lady' hosts ballet, plays, opera and comedy shows and is a stalwart of the 'International Festival of the Arts'. There is a bar, a balcony over the street for between scene sipping, and disabled seating.
