Your gift today will help open the Opera House to everyone this Christmas

We all remember our first Opera House experience – the joy of discovery, the wonder of the building, the emotion of the art on the stage. It is an experience that everyone in our building should be able to have.

However, many children, families and people in our community who experience social or financial disadvantage do not get to have their own Opera House experience.

You can help change that.

Will you make a gift today so that everyone in our community can have their own Sydney Opera House experience?


“... the Sydney Opera House exists because a few brave people dared to think different. They made the impossible, possible, and inspired a nation.”
