Audio description

An audio description service to enhance the experience of customers who are blind or have low vision is offered for selected performances at the Sydney Opera House. This is a live commentary of the visual elements of a performance, by trained volunteer audio describers. Audio description is relayed via a free headset and receiver linked to the FM radio system.

Assistance animals

Guide dogs or any animals trained to assist people with disabilities are welcome inside all areas of the Sydney Opera House. To ensure appropriate seating is allocated, please advise of your requirements when booking.
