I'm just enjoying my day off doing my 'walk' around the city. Definitely, Parramatta has changed a lot from the 90's Parramatta that I know of :)
I was here 23 June 2023.
From Wikipedia :
Riverside Theatres is a multi-venue performing arts centre located in the CBD of Parramatta in the western suburbs of Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.
Opened in 1988, its venues include the 761-seat proscenium arch Riverside Theatre, the 213-seat Lennox Theatre, and the 88-seat Raffety's Theatre. The proscenium arch's architectural design is inspired from the common European Opera House concept which lends an intimate and live performance space. It is considered to be an A Reserve house, which implies that the sight-lines are perfect for most seats and a standard ticket price is applicable to the entire house at the Hirer's discretion.
The National Theatre of Parramatta is a resident theatre company. Other regular companies and productions that perform there include Packemin Productions, Sydney Theatre Company, Sport For Jove, The Premier State Ballet, Cumberland Gang Show and Pacific Opera.
There are no kangaroos in Austria. We're talking about Australia, the world's smallest continent. That being cleared up, let's dive right in! Australia is a sovereign state under the Commonwealth of Nations, which is in turn overseen by Queen Elizabeth the Second, by the Grace of God, Queen of Australia and Her other Realms and Territories, Head of the Commonwealth. The continent was first sighted and charted by the Dutch in 1606. Captain James Cook of Britain came along in the next century to claim it for Britain and name it "New South Wales." Shortly thereafter it was declared to be a penal colony full of nothing but criminals and convicts, giving it the crap reputation you may have heard at your last cocktail party. This rumor ignores 40,000 years of pre-European human history, especially the Aboriginal concept of Dreamtime, an interesting explanation of physical and spiritual reality. The two biggest cities in Australia are Sydney and Melbourne. Sydney is more for business, Melbourne for arts. But that's painting in very broad strokes.
