For more than 30 years, Arts Centre Melbourne has been Melbourne’s leading venue for world-class theatre, dance, music and more. In the Theatres Building, directly under the venue’s iconic Spire, are three separate theatres – the State Theatre, which boasts one of the world’s largest stages and hosts performances by Opera Australia and The Australian Ballet, the Playhouse and the intimate Fairfax Studio. Next door on the banks of the Yarra River, Hamer Hall is a premier venue for musical performances, including the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, and the Sidney Myer Music Bowl is popular for open-air concerts. The new Australian Music Vault features a free exhibition celebrating Australian contemporary music. On Sundays (10am - 4pm), local artisans showcase their unique handmade goods at the Sunday Market. Book tickets at the box office to see a performance or join a guided tour. A range of cafe, dining and bar options are on site and a 24-hour car park available.

Interesting story line with a few surprises. Theatre seats are comfortable but after purchasing chips and coke we were told we couldn’t eat them in the theatre (understandable - but don’t sell them) and couldn’t take the bottles in (then pour them). Lovely sound projection...More

Booked this show having seen the posters at the airport and picked up pretty much the last two seats, a couple of rows from the back. However the terracing of the seating means that the view from the back of the theatre is still superb....More

They really need a better ticketing system when lining up. Other than that it's a great venue with excellent exhibitions.

Hi I'm fairly short so always sit in the dress circle as the floor is not sloped enough for me. It's a beautiful theatre & most seats are great. Enjoy.
