“Stunning”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

I have lived in Sydney for almost 30 years and only just visited the State Theatre. It is stunning and in my opinion one of the most beautiful buildings in Sydney.

Tip: Visit the QT hotel bar for a drink before a show.

Huge historical theatre conveniently located in the city centre, close to transport. Interior walls original decor well kept.

“Definition of what theatre should be”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2013

The building and atmosphere enhances any theatre performance - it is a grand old building, of which there too few left, and any theatre performance here is enhanced by the beauty surrounding it.

“Love Love Love!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2013

This theatre is a historic beauty within Sydney, with grandeur, magnificence and luxury compressed into an intimate yet bold setting. I recently saw a performance of the Imperial Russian Ballet and the whole night was a beautiful memory. With the smooth red carpets, beautiful statuettes and architectural design, this theatre is a stunning icon. Theatre goers will absolutely adore this theatre. However, for those like myself who are beginners within the whole theatre world, you will also enjoy this beautiful locale. Food/drink was a little pricey but what do you expect during an expensive theatre performance? However, the theatre is located within the heart of the city so transport and alternative food options are easily accessible.
