The Opera Theatre was officially renamed the Joan Sutherland Theatre in October 2012 as a lasting tribute to one of Australia’s and the world’s greatest artists.

To step on stage in the spectacular Joan Sutherland Theatre is to take your place on a platform that has seen some of the world’s most exquisite performances. Set beneath the smaller of Sydney Opera House’s two graceful sails, this proscenium arch lyric theatre is the building’s second largest interior venue. It has become a key performance space for Opera Australia and The Australia Ballet – a place of impressive proportions yet equally where you can hear a pin drop between arias, the squeak of shoes in a pas de deux.

The traditional theatre seating is made of white birch timber with red woollen upholstery, and the stage boasts an impressive and extensive fly system and flexible staging, creating a state-of-the-art experience for performers, crews and audiences alike. Up to 70 musicians can be accommodated in the orchestra pit, which supports both intimate vocals and large-scale musical renditions.

Max Seating: 1507
