Couch Critics

Arts and analysis from your armchair

Sydney Opera House

With our Digital Season, you don’t need a monocle, crisp suit or a cravat to be a critic - all you need is your couch and a computer. 

Did you love Alain De Botton? Did Winston Surfshirt take you back to sunnier times? Maybe The Wiggles danced into your heart? Tell us what you thought of different performances by posting your thoughts on Instagram, hashtag #FromOurHouseToYours, and you could be featured on our channel.  

In the meantime, some of our friends from the Sydney Opera House community are here to show us how it’s done. Over the coming weeks, we will be releasing celebrity Couch Critic episodes, starring special guests Benjamin Law, Beverley Wang, Susie Youssef and Jordan Pollard from the Tap Pack. Keep an eye on our Instagram Stories to find out what they’ve been watching, loving and why.
