Dress to the nines, grab your martini and settle in for a night at the opera – from home.
The Sydney Opera House has announced an all-digital program to keep arts lovers entertained, no matter where in the world they are.
Every day at 6pm AEST between Wednesday and Sunday, a new performance will be featured on the Sydney Opera House website for people to stream digitally, free of charge.
The weekly program will be announced every Tuesday; the first batch of shows includes the Sydney Symphony Orchestra performing Beethoven’s Ninth, and an interview panel with Australian writers Celia Pacquola, Josh Thomas and Luke McGregor.
Once available, the videos will remain on the site for viewers to watch on demand.
If you want to take a peek beneath the sails, you can also watch a 360-degree video tour of the iconic space to examine the exterior and interior architecture, accompanied to a soundtrack performed by the Sydney Symphony Orchestra.
Podcasts from some of the key panels and talks at the Opera House in the past year are also available, including an interview with Yotam Ottolenghi and some of the highlights from All About Women 2019.
