Accommodation near State Theatre & Opera House

Having opened its doors to the public in 1981, the South African State Theatre Complex is more than a conglomerate of theatres, but is a primary performing arts venue. Following its three-decade run, the complex has accommodated a variety of world-renowned performances, celebratory events, dinners, festivals, conferences, product launches and a miscellany of high-end functions.

Located in the heart of Tshwane, the South African State Theatre is a popular attraction for theatre enthusiasts and those who are looking to host events in an opulent setting.

Throughout the years, the South African State Theatre Complex has played host to a variety of world-class shows - ranging from opera, musical and children's theatre. While many would argue over what the most memorable shows have been over the years, the most top-billed performances include two high-praised musicals, 'Cats' and 'Serafina'.

Following a brief closure in the mid-1990's, the complex was re-opened in 2001 and continues to play an important role in the development of the performing arts.

What makes the centre so popular is due to its sheer size and the number of venues that are available for use. As it stands, there are currently five theatres which have a seating capacity that accommodates 120 - 1300 audience members. There are also function rooms for business conference and the like as well as studios for performance artists looking for one last rehearsal practice.

For more casual meetups or for theatre-goers wanting a quick nibble and a drink, there are three onsite restaurants and bars, including the Arena Bar, Applause Champaign Bar and Theatre's Restaurant. Not only can you expect efficient service, but the cuisine and snacks served up are incredibly satisfying too.

Arcadia Reviews

Nice suburb...
- Bennie Barnard

No hesitation in recommending to anyone
- Steve Moss

Very surprised by the area. I never knew there was so much to do and see. It is very peaceful and close to anything. One must explore this area to find the hidden gems.
- Niel Swart

Acardia is a very nice, quiet place; it's one of the best places for a person to really relax and get a peace of mind
- Kgauhelo Pitso

Arcadia is a beautiful area we had so much to do. We visited Loftus Versveld for a tour and were rewarded with much more - we attended the captains run (The captains practise session with the team before the game to get them mentally ready).
Saturday we visited the biggest zoo in the country, only a few kilometres away from our apartment. The shopping centres are also within reach and you have a choice of establishments.
The people are friendly and helpful. Do yourself a favour and visit Trademarx at Loftus, the food and prices are the best. Sitting here in Stellenbosch behind my desk thinking back to the T-bone steak we had , I'm hungry all over again.
