About Arts Centre Melbourne

At Arts Centre Melbourne, we bring people together for remarkable experiences.

Sitting beneath our iconic Spire, we’re Australia’s largest and busiest performing arts centre. Each year we stage more than 4,000 performances and public events and welcome over 3 million people through our doors. In fact, as a cultural and architectural landmark in our nation’s cultural capital, we’ve showcased the best of Australian and international performing arts for over 30 years.

We’re proudly the home of our flagship Resident Companies – The Australian Ballet, Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, Melbourne Theatre Company and Opera Australia – and a range of presenters who collectively bring our stages and spaces to life.

Together with our own program of performances, events and activities we offer a diversity of audiences a distinctly multidimensional approach to participation, education and entertainment. We’re also home to Australia’s national archive of performing arts, the Australian Performing Arts Collection, which encompasses the history of circus, dance, music, opera and theatre.

The Collection is a centrepiece of the vision for Arts Centre Melbourne’s Reimagining project, which aims to transform the Theatres Building, create a new public realm, and introduce a purpose-built fourth campus, which will become home to an expanded Australian Music Vault, and a new Australian Performing Arts Gallery to showcase the Collection in a major new tourism and cultural drawcard.

Our organisational values describe behaviours we demonstrate in our interactions with visitors, presenters, government and each other: Leadership, Community, Care More and Creativity.
