WHAT DO I DO?
People often ask us what they should do at the opera… And the truth is, we don’t mind what you do!
You can love it – but you have to tell us! You can hate it – but you definitely have to tell us! You can whoop and cheer and stamp your feet in appreciation. In fact, we love it when you clap during the performance, especially at the end of an aria you especially enjoyed. The orchestra and the singers thrive on your appreciation, so make sure you let them know.
It's our hope you will walk home on cloud nine, and maybe tell all your friends.

The one thing you can’t do, is keep it to yourself.
ABOUT THE VENUE
The City Recital Hall is a 1,238 seat Hall in a shoebox shape, proven worldwide as the ideal shape for hearing western classical music. Based on the classical configuration of the 19th century European concert hall, the design includes gently raking stalls and two galleries that wrap around both sides and rear of the auditorium creating a sense of intimacy between audience and performer.
The elegant decor of French grey, gold leaf, light timber panelling and plum coloured upholstery provides a sense of occasion, enhanced by the white marble grand staircase that sweeps up from the entry foyer to the three seating level foyers, each with their own bar.
