The Backstage Tour

What you see on-stage is only half the story.

Sweep back the curtains and explore behind-the-scenes with an intimate small-group Backstage Tour. Breakfast in the exclusive domain of our performers, journey through rehearsal spaces not open to the public, and be tantalised with insider secrets from our expert guides. 

“The tour was outstanding. It was worth the time to get up early for it.... Amazing"

-Sumo, Tripadvisor

The Opening Act – start the day like a VIP

Meet at Stage Door for this backstage experience, and join an intimate group to begin your exploration. Get ready to see first-hand what it’s like inside the orchestra pit, explore inside a dressing room and hear insider stories and secrets from your tour guide along the way. 

The Real Story – as Much Drama Back-stage as On-stage

Relish the opportunity to get a glimpse into the demanding, passionate, dramatic (and sometimes scandalous) world of our performers – as our guides impart the stories and insider secrets of what really happens behind the curtain.
