Penn & Teller

At the Capitol Theatre

Get excited Sydney! We’re thrilled to confirm that the world famous comedy magicians will bring their Australian premiere tour of their record-breaking Las Vegas live show to the Capitol Theatre this April.  

As the Sydney Opera House’s largest internal venue, the Concert Hall, is closed for major renewal works from February this year, the Sydney Opera House will now present the rescheduled season of Penn & Teller at the Capitol Theatre to accommodate the huge response and demand from audiences.

"They’re evil geniuses. Always amazing, always entertaining."
