We were attending an opera performance which was generally OK and the sight lines good and seats comfortable. The foyers look dated in the their fading decor and the bars even more so but they give a sense of turn of the century (19th to 20th) Perth and for that reason are interesting. Melbourne has done more to improve its theatres while in the older ones retaining some of the historic charm and perhaps HM's needs that lick of paint.

Attended for performance of 1984 on a cold wet windy night. The ticket pick up was very efficient and the foyer bar area gave quick service. The Theatre is in lovely condition. Many handy exits at the end of the play so no queues.

Went to watch 1984, great show but the seats were very uncomfortable and theatre is probably in need of a makeover or at least replacing the seating.

His Majesty's is a beautiful old Edwardian theatre and catching a performance there is a highlight of Perth.

I saw the production of 1984 and it was very well staged & brilliantly performed.

The theatre is a sight in itself with its decor and stylish layout.

Highly recommended

This was close to the hotel I stayed at so it felt quite safe to walk to this venue alone. Easy to pick up tickets that had been previously purchased on line.
