Melbourne is Australia's arts and entertainment capital. Whether you're into opera or contemporary dance, stand-up comedy or performance art, Melbourne's cultural calendar is packed with concerts, plays, festivals and all sorts of other events to keep you entertained and challenged all year round. As well as the modern concert halls, state theatres and magnificent entertainment and arts complex, there are a large number of heritage theatres and halls.
Here is a shot taken in the orchestra pit of the historic Athenaeum Theatre on Collins Street, a beautiful old theatre, completed in 1842 and still going strong. Just i case you are wondering what the performance was - Melbourne Opera Company's production of "Faust" earlier this year.
