Missed him at La Scala while in Italy during Easter. At $400 minimum for back of the house tickets, he was sold out at Carnegie Hall during trip to New York. Finally caught up to him in Vancouver for his performance in the Orpheum’s wonderful setting for classical music. Great sight lines from the upper decks with great acoustics and plush seating. Incredible concert! There were 3 standing ovations, with the first one lasting over 10 minutes to compel him to come back on stage to continue playing!

As far as I know, this is one of the oldest and most ornate theatres in Vancouver. Being a young city, we are eclipsed by the historic buildings of much older cities, but the Orpheum takes you back to a time of grandeur that you won’t see in its contemporary counterparts..

As the home of the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra (VSO), there are events taking place at the Orpheum year-round. If you’re a lover of the orchestra, stop by the box office to try your luck at scoring rush tickets to an event happening on the same day. If you prefer to make plans, book your tickets online or join the VSO mailing list to find out what they have coming up.

A group of friends went there last December for the Messiah. I didn't go there for awhile, but the elegant decorations, painted ceiling, interior and classic stunning chandelier still caught my eye. I don't mind to go there once in awhile to enjoy the culture and atmosphere. Happy Travelling!

Inside it's so fabulous that the powers that be have kept the old world feel in the decor. I really enjoy concerts in this small intimate theatre.

Recently went to see the Vancouver Chamber Choir and Pacific Baroque Orchestra. Great performance!

I have not been to the Orpheum for many years. Very nice venue. However, I must say 2nd row orchestra centre is not really that good. Farther back is better. I was getting neck strain having to look up the whole time.

We paid 200 each for best seats available to see Itzhak Perlman. Our seats were in the upper balcony. From there you can see nothing. Even if you can crane your neck enough to see past the person sitting in front of you, the stage is soooo far away the people look like ants. Luckily the sound was amazing and we enjoyed listening to Itzhak play even if he didn’t appear until after the intermission.
Disappointed.

Guided tour explores theatre from top to bottom. Tour guides and BC Entertainment Hall of Fame displays provide information about the history of entertainment in Vancouver. Lots of walking and stairs.

If anything is going on at the Orpheum while you are in town, GO! Ornate elegance, great acoustics. Enjoyed the Vancouver Symphony's Tea and Trumpets which is in the afternoon. Worth every loonie.
