Updated 1 October 2021. There will continue to be frequent updates, so please ensure that you are reading the update with the most recent date and time.
In line with the advice of health authorities and Victoria’s ongoing lockdown, the Centre will be closing its doors from 8pm Thursday 5 August until 11.59pm Thursday 4 November inclusive.
All concerts and events during this time will be postponed or cancelled, and all customers will be offered a refund or the opportunity to exchange into a future performance.
Through this closure, Melbourne Recital Centre continues to play its part in helping to slow the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) in Victoria and keeping the community safe. Melbourne Recital Centre cares deeply about the health and safety of its audiences, artists and staff. We acknowledge that the suspension of normal operations is a difficult but essential action for the health of the Victorian public.
We can’t wait to welcome music-lovers back to Melbourne Recital Centre when it’s safe to do so.
Information for Ticket Holders
We ask that ticket holders do not come to Melbourne Recital Centre. The Centre is currently closed to the public.
Members of the Melbourne Recital Centre Team will contact ticket holders notifying them if their upcoming concert has been postponed or cancelled, and how refunds and exchanges will be processed.
Ticket holders who purchased tickets directly from the concert’s presenter will be contacted by the presenter’s box office or representative.
