Completely refurbished in 1997 at a huge cost, this beautiful Edwardian theatre is an attraction in itself. Also functional, Saint James Theatre offers superb acoustics and viewing angles as well as the most modern stage and lighting facilities in New Zealand. Highly popular with international and local dance and musical productions this auditorium is in great demand. The Royal New Zealand Ballet is stationed here and performs contemporary and classical pieces several times a year. Disabled seating is available and there is an excellent cafe on-site.
