The Melbourne Recital Centre/Melbourne Theatre Company project was delivered by Major Projects Victoria on behalf of Arts Victoria and the University of Melbourne for the State Government of Victoria.
Located on Southbank Boulevard, the $128 million complex stands proudly in the company of other great music and theatre venues around the world.
Iconic architecture and exceptional construction set the stage for the project, which included the development of four new arts spaces that will drive Melbourne’s music and theatre scene for decades to come.
- 500-seat Sumner Theatre
- 1,000-seat Elisabeth Murdoch Hall for chamber music
- 150-seat salon for more intimate musical performances
- Rehearsal studio and home-base for the Melbourne Theatre Company
These two striking buildings, on the corner of Sturt Street and Southbank Boulevard, have set a new standard in theatre and music presentation in Victoria. The complex has enhanced and developed Melbourne’s reputation as a major centre for arts and culture in Australia.
