“Love Love Love!”
Reviewed December 17, 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.

“Amazing”
Reviewed November 2, 2013 via mobile

Totally amazing would have to be Sydney best space for seeing a show or theatre. Saw the Russian ballet last month and in such beautiful surroundings you would think that you had been taken in a short trip to Europe. This is a must see for Sydney travelers.

“Sydney theatre at its most spectacular”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

The opulence of the architecture is incredible.
The non-descript doorway opens up to the jewel-box entrance which really only gives a minor taste of what lies behind the doors to the theatre proper.
It is always a joy to walk in early and just enjoy the ambience.

“WOW, what a great place”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

The State Theatre is one of Sydney's oldest cultural institutions.
If you have the chance you should enter this great antique place.
It is located in the very heart of Sydney. The building still shows its original late victorian aspect and decor.
Get a ticket and enjoy the show and the venue!
