Every Christmas, the ladies in my family dress up in their theatre-going finest and attend the Christmas performance put on by the Queensland Ballet (my sister is an ardent balletomane). It's a lovely tradition and we all thoroughly enjoy getting dressed up and enjoying a glass of champagne before the performance and during intermission. The staff is very polite and... More

This centre has multiple theatres that cater for large and small audiences. I have attended many performances at each of the venues and have found the staff always polite and helpful. I much prefer the smaller theatres for seats with a good view of the stage. I do feel that tickets to performances are expensive even for the "cheaper" seats... More

The shows are amazing there and Singing in the Rain was no exception. The sound system is extremely good. I caught the train to... More

Enjoyed a few concerts in lyric theatre. A good view from all seats and very comfortable. Quick exit. Tip - You can purchase parking ticket beforehand which makes it much easier to access and cheaper.
