Sydney Opera House Insiders

Your Insider benefits are waiting ... 

By becoming a Sydney Opera House Insider you’ll be among the first to access tickets to many of our shows and festivals, including Vivid LIVE* and our Contemporary Music and Kids' programs.

You’ll also be the first to find out about priority pre-sales and more with our weekly Insiders newsletter.

Insiders get access to a range of unique benefits, including:

  • No booking fees – so you save on every ticket. 
  • Save on food and drinks with 10% off at Opera Bar, House Canteen, Portside and our Theatre Bars*.
  • Play host and bring a friend on one of our standard, junior or backstage tours. Your friend will pay but you won’t (must be booked over the phone). 
  • Insiders get the VIP treatment with a dedicated Insiders phone number to make bookings or enquiries. 
  • 10% off at our gift shops.
  • Present your Insiders card and receive concession prices for the Dendy Film of the Month at Dendy Newtown.

You can also buy a membership for a friend or family member.
