Audio Described Performance - to be confirmed
Audio description is a verbal commentary relayed to audience members who are blind or have low vision. The description conveys what is happening on the stage during the parts of the performance where there is no dialogue.
The description does not interfere with the performance but fills in the gaps: describing facial expressions, costume, scenery and action sequences. Audio description at the opera also reads surtitles aloud so that anyone unable to access visual aspects of the performance can follow the plot fully and independently.
The audio description is provided by highly trained Vision Australia describers via a discreet receiver and earphone.
Audio described performances and tactile tour bookings can only be made through Opera Australia by calling the Box Office in Sydney on 02 9318 8200
