  • An historical building that even in these modern days can take your breath away. From the striking facade to the ornate interior His Majesty's Theatre embraces us in a blanket of history, opulence and sense of wonder. Cannot imagine a better place to be to watch a performance of the Nutcracker by our own highly acclaimed WA Ballet Company. Beautiful building, amazing performance, fantastic night out.
  • I saw the Nutcracker, presented by the West Australian ballet, here before Christmas and was impressed with the live orchestra in the pit, the professional dancers and the dynamic stage design. We had back row seats, but still enjoyed the show. A beautiful classic venue, definitely worth booking a show.
