What they say
Underground Opera’s West End to Broadway satisfied on many levels, mixing songs from a clutch of popular and art-house musicals.
- Stage Whispers
The selection of numbers were unashamedly dramatic and romantic, and this is where musical theatre excels, in pulling the heart strings with angst and true love.- Scenestr
This is without doubt the best kept secret performance space in Brisbane. Six metres underground, a stage has been constructed in the centre of four wings of the historic reservoir.

The Spring Hill Reservoir
The Spring Hill Reservoir is located just behind Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley, on Wickham Terrace (look for the Old Tower Mill!).
The Spring Hill Reservoir is architecturally astonishing. Six metres underground, the reservoir is divided into 15 sections by headwalls, with each section joined by hand-lain brick archways, which have been standing for 140 years.
The acoustics are sensational, allowing our performers’ voices to resonate throughout the venue, with each audience member enjoying the beautifully stunning sound that is created, no matter where they are seated.
A stage has been built at the centre of four wings and the intimacy of the reservoir breaks down the barriers between the audience and the performers.
Please note: Concerts are suitable for patrons of all ages who are fit and able to descend stairs into the stunning Spring Hill Reservoir performance space.
