The Lyric Theatre is located within the Star City Casino entertainment district of Darling Harbour. If you don't mind paying for it, you can certainly enjoy a lavish weekend or night out here including accommodation at the Casino.
In addition to a performance at The Lyric Theatre, you'll enjoy a range of restaurants, clubs and cafes, and many of these have spectacular views of the surrounding harbour area. The theatre attracts the big names, and has seen performances by Elton John and Tony Bennett. The space seats an audience of 2,000, large enough to create wonderful atmosphere yet small enough to remain personalised.
The theatre itself has only been established since 2001, and despite competition from the more historic venues in the city, The Lyric Theatre is well respected and the international acts it draws confirm its wide-spread appeal. Getting to and from The Lyric Theatre is easy, and although you'll need to pay, there is plenty of security parking available within the Casino and the surrounding Darling Harbour area.
You can also easily walk from any CBD train stations, or catch a taxi or the monorail. Part of the joy of attending this venue is the chance to soak in the impressive Darling Harbour area, with its glistening water during the day and night lights sparkling enthusiastically.
Address: The Star Casino, 80 Pyrmont Street, Pyrmont, NSW, 2009.
