Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This theater has been a center of arts and culture in Perth since the reign of sovereigns in Western Australia. His Majesty's Theater is large and well-defined; the furnishings are luxurious and welcoming. It's a great venue for the performing arts, especially ballet and opera. His Majesty's has also featured many popular performances over the years. Locals commend the government of Sir Charles Court, who saved this local artistic treasure from demolition. Access is easy for audiences.

The theatre is amazing, and the show was the best. The theater is worth looking at. You will feel as though you are in a movie back in time.

I love that this theatre still exists in all it's historic splendour. The sightlines might not be as good as modern theatres but the atmosphere, the decorations, the feel of the place is wonderful. I didn't like the show I saw but it didn't matter. It was still a charming night out.

Dressing in 1930s clothes and trying to solve a Murder mystery while having a good meal! Fantastic value and a really great night out with friends.
Great service too.

In the 1890s, gold was discovered in Western Australia. The backward colony became rich, and one splendid result was His Majesty.s Theatre. His Majesty's is a glittering remnant of times gone by, with rich furnishings and comfortable seats. These days His Majesty's is used for artistic performances such as opera and ballet.

His Majesty's Theatre opened in 1904, when Western Australia was awash with money from the Kalgoorlie Goldfields. It was, in its time, the largest and most most splendid theatre in Australia. The theatre is built in Edwardian Baroque style. His Majesty's was rescued for the people of WA by the Premier, Sir Charles Court.

My wife and I joined two other friends to watch the new West Australian ballet ‘Dracula’ with music by WASO. We sat central, front row of the top level so we could see the dancers from above. Perfect seats, brilliant sound and exceptional service by the theatre staff. The Ballet was amazing too!

His Majesty's Theatre, usually called 'the Maj' is one of the proudest reminders of Western Australia's gold boom at the turn of the 20th century. Since it was puchased by the WA State Government of Sir Charles Court in 1977, it has been restored several times. It is built in Edwardian Baroque style, with a sumptuous interior. The Maj is home base for the WA Opera and is regularly used by the WA Ballet, as well as other performances.

This is a magnificent piece of Perths history with the cinema being an attraction in itself.
The wood architecture along with heavy vivid curtains as to the ambience of attending a show.

I have been here many times but last time I was in the Nosebleed section and it is so steep that you worried about falling out of your chair.

This is a magnificent heritage theatre.

This was held Downstairs at the Maj.
What happens at the end of the ‘Once upon a time..’
A very entertaining and enjoyable evening. Such a great start to the weekend. We heard from Cinderella, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Bella from Beauty and the Beast, Rapunzel, Mulan, Pocahontas, Little Mermaid, Princess who kisses the frog. Definitely worth attending!
