As part of our commitment to improving disability access we are delighted to announce our program now includes a number of inclusive performances for young people with a disability. Our aim is to ensure all young people and their families, carers and friends have an opportunity to experience the magic of live performance and Creative Play at Sydney Opera House.
Our 2012 program offers autism-friendly performances; pre-show sensory touch tours of the stage for young people who are blind and vision-impaired; and targeted performances for young people with intellectual disabilities.
Information and booking details for these performances are featured in the following pages.
