State Theatre – Australia

Melbourne's original State Theatre was built in 1929 to seat 3,371 patrons and is situated on Flinders Street. It was conceived as an "atmospheric auditorium", a novelty in Melbourne at the time. Another notable feature was the dual-console Wurlitzer organ, the first to be built "west of Chicago", and since relocated to the Moorabbin Town Hall in 1967. The State Theatre was renamed the Forum in 1963.The current State Theatre opened in 1984 and is part of the The Arts Centre located by the Yarra River and St Kilda Road, the city's main thoroughfare. The State Theatre is a venue for ballet, opera and other productions (but not plays, which are performed elsewhere). Like the other performance venues within the Arts Centre, the State Theatre is underground. The stage is one of the largest in the world.Companies performing opera in the State Theatre include Opera Australia (which has presented seven or eight operas each season) and Melbourne City Opera. In the future, it is anticipated the Victorian Opera, created in November 2005 after the separation between the Sydney and Melbourne "wings" of Opera Australia, will also be making appearances there.The theatre is frequently home to The Production Company, a theatre company specialising in short season revivals of classic Broadway musicals.
