Help everyone experience the joy of the Opera House

The Sydney Opera House is more than a building. It’s a place of possibility and wonder, that means the world to us all. Today, we’re inviting you to look with us towards the future – and help us make sure it’s one filled with creativity, diversity, and inclusivity. It’s our mission to be Everyone’s House: a place that welcomes and celebrates more of the community than ever before. But we can’t do this alone. 

As a not-for-profit, the Opera House relies on donations to fund our most impactful programs and make the Opera House Everyone’s House. Explore below to find out how you can make a difference this end of financial year.
