Melbourne's relatively cool climate and European heritage have shaped it as Australia’s city of civilised indoor pursuits. There are many top class performances throughout the year at the Victorian Arts Centre which is home to Opera Australia, the Melbourne Theatre Company, the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra and the Australian Ballet.
