The Princess Theatre Melbourne, Seating Plan & Parking
The theatre’s name is widely known by reference to it’s friendly ghost of ‘Federici’. It is believed that the ghost of Federici is still residing within the main hall of the Princess Theatre. Back in 1888, the renowned opera performer ‘Frederick Baker’ died during his performance on stage. Many guests and crews have said to have seen his ghost within the theatre, and even today, a seat in the Dress Circle is left empty just for this ghost.
The theatre venue also boasts two fully serviced dining rooms for pre-show dining (The Melba and the Marriner). As one of the oldest theatre venues in the city, the Princess Theatre has hosted some of the most popular and successful stage productions; including Les Miserables, Phantom of the Opera, Mama Mia and Cats. Visiting this century-old landmark is a must for all history and heritage lovers.
