Industry Insiders

Sydney Opera House invites Australian artists and arts professionals to join our Industry Insiders membership program. 

By becoming an Industry Insider you’ll receive access to special industry offers, discounts to select performances, invitations to talks and artist masterclasses and other benefits.

Industry Insiders is a free, three-year membership obtained through a brief EOI process. You must demonstrate you are currently working professionally in the arts sector to be a member. Please complete the below form and we will confirm your membership within 7 days. 

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

  • No booking fees – so you save on every ticket. 
  • Save on food and drinks with 10% off at Opera Bar, Opera Kitchen, 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.
