This extraordinary heritage building has recently been renovated with new lighting features to illuminate its restored art deco façade. Enjoy a stroll along the beach before stepping into its charming foyer and feeling the nostalgia of this hundred-year-old theatre. Not only have legendary rock bands performed here but above all the theatre has outstanding acoustics for opera.
This old red-brick former brewery exudes industrial chic and modern comfort. It has great coffee and a happy hour which can be enjoyed on the sunny terrace. With a warm and welcoming atmosphere, you will feel the buzz of being close to the stage and performers in the intimate Merlyn Theatre.
Its proximity to the CBD and public transport makes Arts Centre Melbourne a convenient venue for city workers and suburbanites alike. Be guided by the colourful spire to this exceptional venue where so many world-class companies and artists perform regularly – whether it be in Hamer Hall, where the excellent acoustics reach even the back of the Balcony, or the Playhouse, perfect for chamber opera.
All our venues are easily accessible by car, bus, train or tram. Victorian Opera supports the use of public transport as per its sustainable development policy. Plan your public transport journey.
