Artscape Theatre is situated on Malan Street in Cape Town. Our Opera House seats over 1480 patrons with 23 rows of seats and we even cater for wheelchair users. The stage is controlled by computer machinery with electrically operated curtaining. The accompanying orchestra pit can hold between 75 and 80 musicians at a time.

The theatre slightly smaller than the main opera house and can seat approx. 540 people (if the orchestra pit is not used.) Similar to the Opera house, all stage equipment is electronically operated.
