The 2,005-seat Sydney Lyric Theatre is one of Sydney’s premier live entertainment venues and hosts a range of world-renowned musicals, theatre shows, concerts, operas and ballet performances. A recent multimillion-dollar auditorium upgrade has completely revamped the theatre with brand-new foyers, bars and state-of-the-art technology. Today, you can witness some of the best shows from Broadway and West End at the Sydney Lyric Theatre.
Depending on when you visit, you can pick from an assortment of high-quality musicals, such as “Miss Saigon”, “Priscilla Queen of the Desert”, “Cats” and “Matilda the Musical”. You can also see legendary performers from around the globe, with Elton John, Al Pacino, Bon Jovi and Stevie Wonder all having graced the stage.
Arrive early and enjoy a glass of champagne with Sydney Harbour views from the Dress Circle balcony or wait for the interval ice-cream vendor to deliver a snack to your seat. Located in The Star Sydney, the theatre is surrounded by fine-dining restaurants, spas, designer stores and a casino.
You can catch the Light Rail to a stop right outside the Sydney Lyric Theatre or get the bus to the Maritime Museum, which is less than a five-minute walk away. The ferry also drops you off about two minutes away at the Pyrmont Bay ferry stop. If you’re driving, park at Harbourside Car Park or Wilsons Parking.
