Sydney Opera House Presents

Founded to complement the work of the resident companies, the Opera House’s own presenting arm, Sydney Opera House Presents (SOHP), has for more than 15 years brought audiences a uniquely diverse program spanning Contemporary Music & Performances, Talks & Ideas, Children, Families & Creative Learning, First Nations cultures and Classical Music.

Hundreds of thousands of people attend hundreds of SOHP performances each year, with millions more experiencing what the Opera House has to offer through our Grammy Award-winning Broadcast Studio. Our festivals showcase the diversity of our programming, including celebrating the world’s most interesting contemporary music through Vivid LIVE, First Nations cultures through Dance Rites and emerging social and cultural issues through All About Women and Antidote.
