Sydney Theatres – Small & Old City Venues List, Shows & Performances




One of the most amazing places to go for an exciting theatrical experience is the Sydney Opera House. This iconic landmark is probably the most easily recognised structure in all of Australia, so enjoying a theatre performance here also provides the chance to go sightseeing. With modern dance to classical music and opera, make sure you book your tickets way in advance.

For ballet enthusiasts, the Australian Ballet has regular performances at the Opera House. Remember to treat yourself to an exciting sightseeing tour of the Opera House too!

Alternatively, make your way to the Enmore Theatre which is easily accessible from the Newtown Train Station. This theatre is best known for great comedy shows and immersive musical performances. For those who love plays, Belvoir Theatre and the Griffin Theatre Company are a must-visit. Be sure to check out the performance schedule ahead of your travel dates.

Visit Walsh Bay, home to the Bangarra Dance Company, and enjoy a stunning performance by the globally acclaimed group. The dance group brings to life intense stories of the Dreamtime through modern dance; an exciting way to spend your time in Sydney.

In addition to this, Walsh Bay also hosts the Wharf Theatre and the Sydney Dance Company. This dance company not only puts on stellar performances, but it also offers dance classes for those interested in this form of art – certainly an amazing way to take up a new hobby.

Wondering where to watch the best musicals and huge sold-out shows? Look out for the schedule at the Capitol Theatre located near Chinatown. Other options for these amazing musicals include the State Theatre, The Theatre Royal as well as the Sydney Lyric Theatre.

Sydney theatres provide a great way to unwind and are one of the most popular places to enjoy the city.
