Sydney Theatre Company, Wharf Theatre, Walsh Bay
Sydney Theatre Company (soon to be under the artistic direction of Cate Blanchett and her husband Andrew Upton) has several venues: Wharf 1 and 2, Sydney Theatre (opposite the Wharf) and the Drama Theatre at the Opera House. I particularly love The Wharf - a great example of re-use of older facilities (ie a finger wharf on Sydney Harbour), when it is so easy to demolish redundant buildings from an earlier age. I love the use of painted iron and wood.
Piers 4/5 at Walsh Bay serve as home to many arts companies. Apart from STC, there are rehearsal spaces and offices for various performing arts companies: Sydney Dance Company, Australian Theatre for Young People, Bangara Dance Company, Sydney Children's Choir, Sydney Philharmonia Choirs.
When you come to Sydney, make sure to enjoy some of our outstanding performing arts offerings!
