Date Night

Meet the winning couples

Everyone could use a special night now and then, especially when it’s organised for you – no babysitter or dinner reservation required!

Georgia Cockerell

Greg and Maura’s first date was to see Arcadia in the Drama Theatre in 1995 and they moved in together six months later. The Opera House holds a special place in their hearts. Unable to celebrate their 24th anniversary on site this year, we brought the House to them instead. 

This warm, family oriented couple don’t get to spend much time together, with busy jobs and two kids. 

Judy has been working through the pandemic as an intensive care nurse, self-isolating from her children when at home. Meanwhile, Jack has been juggling; taking care of the family and managing his electrical shop.

Both couples won a bottle of Champagne Perrier-Jouët Grand Brut, 6 Perrier-Jouët Flutes and a platter to match. They enjoyed an exclusive online Champagne masterclass with Thomas Lapeyre, Perrier-Jouët Brand Ambassador and settled in to watch a performance from the Sydney Opera House Digital Season.

Each couple was also the lucky recipient of a $300 Sydney Opera House gift voucher, to be used at their leisure when the House reopens.

With thanks to our Partners Mastercard® and Champagne Perrier-Jouët.
