Why Support Us?
Jorn Utzon changed the creative and cultural landscape of Australia forever. It is our responsibility now to ensure his cultural legacy continues to inspire and that we fulfil our substantial inheritance as a creative gathering place.
With the help of our donors, we are committed to ensuring that the most acclaimed, imaginative and engaging performing arts experiences from Australia and around the world can be enjoyed by everyone, everywhere.

- Create, present and produce world-class work across all art forms
- Develop our education and community programs
- Offer free public programs and activities
- Extend our Indigenous programming and initiatives
