Hire the Lyric Theatre

QPAC's 2,000 seat ‘flagship’

The stunning 2,000 seat Lyric Theatre is the ‘flagship’ of QPAC.

It offers exceptional acoustics, large main and rear stages, an orchestra pit and a magical atmosphere of warmth and elegance. For these reasons it is the preferred venue for local, interstate and international performers.

Constructed in the traditional horseshoe shape, the auditorium has continental seating with stalls and two levels of balconies.

The stage area includes main, side and rear stages, proscenium arch and apron. The pit may be raised to create a thrust stage. The rear stage can be acoustically isolated so the main and rear stages may be used concurrently.
