Sydney Opera House Offers Vivid LIVE Stage Door Tour...
For Ten Days Only

Sydney Opera House has announced The Vivid LIVE Stage Door Tour, marking the first time Sydney Opera House has offered bespoke backstage tours drawing content from a major festival.

Departing from Stage Door at 6pm each night throughout Vivid LIVE, these intimate tours will offer exclusive access into Sydney Opera House theatres, backstage corridors and possibly even dressing rooms - all bound to be abuzz with festival fever.

Along the way visitors will gain insider knowledge about what it takes to bring Vivid LIVE to life, as well as learning more about this year’s acts including Karen O in STOP THE VIRGENS, Florence + the Machine, Janelle Monae, The Temper Trap and PVT.

The Vivid LIVE Stage Door Tour wouldn’t be complete without mentioning the famous Lighting the Sails, which sees the House transform into an icon of colour and light via digital mapping technology. The tour will take an up close look at designs by multi-award winning German design collective, URBANSCREEN.

Tickets to The Vivid LIVE Stage Door Tour will be extremely limited, with only ten departures over the ten days of the Vivid LIVE festival.

The Vivid LIVE Stage Door Tour includes:

• A souvenir Vivid LIVE Stage Door Tour lanyard
• A welcome drink after the tour

Tour tickets are sold separately to Vivid LIVE shows.
