The Opera House has been a social and events venue for successive generations in Wellington.

It hosts a wide variety of performances and events and is a place that springboards and showcases up and coming talent. It is a popular choice for on-stage gala events, dining and program launches.

Centrally located and a short stroll to Courtenay Place, it offers something a little different for events in the heart of Wellington. Please note that this 100-year-old, historic theatre has no lift to the Gallery and Dress Circle; wheelchair access is only available for the stalls.
