Drama Theatre

Act out and experience your greatest ambitions.

With its black walls and deep blue carpet, all eyes are drawn to centre stage in the dark beauty that is the Drama Theatre – Sydney Opera House’s most alluring and unique space. A classic and purist venue, the Drama Theatre is nevertheless the site of some of the most original artistic endeavours beneath the sails, such as those by performed by Bangarra Dance Theatre, Bell Shakespeare and the internationally renowned Sydney Theatre Company.

Fully equipped with a computerised flying system and twin concentric stage revolves, this medium-sized proscenium arch theatre is as much suited for experimental performances as it is for more traditional productions of drama, dance and spoken-word presentations. Intimate yet impressive, its earthy vibe sets the scene for everything from fearless contemporary and classic performances to compelling presentations and even meet and greets for the nation’s powerbrokers.

For those seeking to maximise the limelight, the auditorium seating is designed to create impeccable sightlines from all angles. So whatever the performance or presentation, you’re guaranteed to keep the crowd on the edge of their seats.
