I saw a performance of Les Miserable at Capitol Theater and it's so great! The actors' voice are amazing and full of emotion. The design of the theater is beautiful as well. I was amazed how they changed the scene setting so quickly that the show was smooth. I came there 1 hour before the show and got huge discount.

Recently went and saw Les Miserables here at the Capitol Theatre. A beautiful old theatre which was built in the early 1900's and then restored in the 1990's. When you step inside the theatre it is highly decorated with statues and the ceiling appears to have little twinkling stars. The seats are comfortable with plenty of leg room. There are... More

I recently saw a performance on Les Miserables at the Capitol Theatre, with someone who had not been to the Capitol previously. We took in the beautiful architecture and design. The facilities are fabulous, staff friendly and helpful. Difficult to find a 'bad seat' in the theatre.

I have seen numerous shows at the Capitol Theatre over the years. Today I saw Les Miserable and was reminded how stunning the heritage section of this theatre is. Its worth a visit to see the decor and interior if possible even if there is not a show on. It is a rare theatre in Australia due to the architecture... More

A friend and I went to the Wednesday afternoon matinee on May 6th and had seats at the back of the stalls. We had a good view of the stage but the sound was incredibly noisy and often drowned the lovely voices of the singers who seemed to be in competition with the orchestra. I have seen Les Miserables three... More

Saw the Wizard of Oz here and it was absolutely spectacular! Myself & my (ex)husband thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. For everyone, even if you're not a big fan of musicals!

Absolutely brilliant production. Sydney cast and presentation world class. The Capitol Theatre itself is a treasure and to see such an excellent production in it is perfection! Well worth seeing - in fact unmissable!

Went with my Wife and two children (9/12). We all loved the show. The orchestra and all the singers/actors were great. Could not believe the transitions from scene to scene with the sets being changed so quickly. Absolutely loved it.

We love going to the Capitol Theatre and have seen many productions there. Definitely our first choice in theatres in Sydney. Les Miserables was the last production we saw. Fantastic and thoroughly enjoyed it. Front row seats in Dress Circle. Music was far too loud but the singing was wonderful. Always recommend the Capitol Theatre.
