Drama Theatre

The Drama Theatre, located in the north-western corner of Sydney Opera House is the more intimate of our two proscenium arch theatres with a seated capacity for up to 544.

Designed to create unobstructed sightlines from all auditorium positions, the venue is as well suited for experimental performances as it is for more traditional productions of drama, dance, musical and spoken-word.

Home to Sydney Opera House Resident Companies, the Drama Theatre is rarely available for commercial hire.
