Grand, elegant and effortlessly dazzling, the Orpheum has entranced millions of show-goers since opening in 1927. The domed auditorium – designed in the rare Spanish Baroque Revival-style – features exquisite décor and sweeping staircases; beneath the sprawling ceiling mural, crowned by a crystal chandelier, are nearly 2,700 seats arranged in curved arcs.
Best known as home of the globally lauded Vancouver Symphony Orchestra – the largest performing arts organization in Western Canada – the Orpheum also features performances by Vancouver’s fine choral groups, as well as artists visiting from around the world.
Part of the Vancouver Civic Theatres venue collective, owned by the City of Vancouver.
