Sweep back the curtain and venture into the heart of New Zealand’s only surviving Victorian Theatre with a velvet, gilt and glamour backstage tour

Journey through rehearsal spaces not open to the public, and be tantalised with secrets, learn of our ghost and uncover the stories of the backstage world with an intimate tour from our expert guide.

Even if you're a local to Whanganui, why not join one of our tours and marvel as we reveal the building's inner working. Get ready to see first-hand what it’s like inside the orchestra pit, explore inside a dressing room and learn what really happens behind the curtain. 

As the Royal Opera House is a fully working theatre, each tour is a unique experience, and may include opportunities to see rehearsals, or the magnificent backstage technology in operation.
