About Sydney Lyric

 Australia’s newest and most innovative theatre.

The Sydney Lyric opened in 1997 and has a history of welcoming legendary international performers and productions. Acquired by Foundation Theatres in 2011, it has now become a staple of the NSW musical theatre scene, hosting World Premieres, including Strictly Ballroom the Musical and Dream Lover, Australian Premieres including Legally Blonde the Musical, Beautiful: The Carole King Musical and Matilda the Musical, and successful runs of smash hit musicals such as Annie, Grease, War Horse, The Book of Mormon and Saturday Night Fever.

The Sydney Lyric is one of Australia’s newest and most innovative theatres. Having recently undergone an $25 million renovation to the auditorium, foyers, bars, ticketing and merchandising facilities, it boasts state-of-the-art facilities throughout. The renovation was completed with a holistic approach to theatre design, focusing equally on the patron experience as well as those that work within its walls. The design resonates for each of these groups for its innovation, comfort and accessibility.

The 2018 auditorium renovation has enhanced the audience experience by increasing the intimacy and connectivity between actor and audience. With world leading flexibility of space, the theatre can ‘breathe’ through four seating configurations: 1350, 1500, 1750 and 2000 seats. The auditorium size transformation occurs in less than 60 seconds and requires no technical reconfiguration of the production as the walls are acoustically transparent: true touch-of-a-button flexibility. This system, developed by Foundation Theatres, gives producers unprecedent ability to control inventory and yield, ensuring the theatre always feels full and intimate, while maximising sales to the market’s full potential. Built in consultation with international theatre owners such as Cameron Mackintosh, the resulting changes have been hailed a great success by producers, actors and patrons alike.
