One of the main theaters in Victoria, it has some of the look and feel of London's West End. Pleasant, can be a little tight, much like the West End.... Small enough to feel included in a performance, and yet large enough for principal events.

This is a charming old theatre with an air of grandeur but with an intimate setting both for visiting musical acts, the symphony, the opera and the ballet.

I attended my granddaughter and grandson's dance recital at the Royal Theatre. It was great and even though the Royal Theatre is very old it still has ambiance.

I have attended numerous events at this theatre over 30ish years. The building has great character and the volunteers / staff at the theatre are always very helpful. Most seats are excellent, but we avoid the upper balcony as it warms up a fair bit.
