A world of musicals in Sydney

Sydney is alive with breathtaking and memorable musicals. In world-class venues you'll see timeless classics and foot-tapping favourites for all ages. 

Nicknamed the Palace of Dreams, the State Theatre has been entertaining theatregoers with dynamic shows and musicals since 1929. Visit this palatial building, featuring Italian, gothic and art deco influences as well as hand-cut crystal chandeliers, for a memorable evening. The State Theatre is a short walk from Town Hall Station and the grand shopping arcade of the Queen Victoria Building.

At the nearby Capitol Theatre, in Haymarket, you will also see Australian and international musicals that appeal to seasoned and younger theatregoers alike. Take the light rail from Central Station and get off in Haymarket or walk from Town Hall Station.

Aladdin, Sydney

Sydney Lyric Theatre is another venue for big musicals. It's part of The Star entertainment and casino complex near Darling Harbour. You can get the light rail from Central Station to The Star, where you can dine at gourmet restaurants including Momofuku Seiobo and Osteria Balla Manfredi.

For a spectacular night visit the spectacle of Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour, a magnificent pop-up opera house on the edge of Sydney Harbour, complete with bars, restaurants and tiered seating. See some of Sydney’s most spectacular landmarks provide the backdrop for the world’s best loved operas.

Theatre Royal in the MLC Centre, near Martin Place Station, is another popular venue for big musicals. Beyond the city centre, the Riverside Theatre in Parramatta is a delightful venue for musicals. Smaller venues in the inner city, such as the Seymour Centre at the University of Sydney, put on musicals too.

Before the show, savour delicious creations at an award-winning restaurant. Or complete your night with a cocktail and beautiful views of Sydney Harbour at O Bar and Dining in Australia Square, or Blu Bar on 36 at the Shangri-La Hotel.
