    Victoria Theatre

    The grand old dame of Singapore theatres, the Victoria Theatre has been a focal point for Singapore's performing arts since colonial days. With a sitting capacity of 900, it's the ideal place for performances of dance, drama and classical music. The orchestra pit, sound system and public foyer were recently upgraded for quality stage productions.

    Victoria Theatre was built as the Town Hall and was an architectural milestone for Singapore as it marked the arrival of Victorian Revivalism. Victoria Memorial Hall was built as a grand gesture to the memory of Queen Victoria in 1901. During World War II, the Hall was used as a hospital and following Japanese surrender, a venue of Japanese war crime trials. Today, Victoria Theatre and Concert Hall is the home of the Singapore Symphony Orchestra and a lively and popular venue for the performing arts.
