Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) update

Last updated: 23/03/2020

The Opera House was built to serve the community and nothing is more important to us than the health and safety of our artists, audiences, visitors and our valued staff.

​In line with decisions made by the National Cabinet as communicated by the NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian, the Opera House has today closed to the public until further notice to help protect the health of all visitors and staff and minimise the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus) in the State.

Any update to these restrictions will be communicated by the NSW Government in due course. Further official information and advice on COVID-19 for community and businesses in NSW is available at  

In difficult times, we believe that the arts can both inspire and strengthen the community. While the Opera House’s physical stages are not in use, please follow us on social media and check the website where we will continue to share uplifting stories and digital experiences with you all.

Thank you to everyone for your understanding and support.

Health and Safety Information

The NSW community should act now to reduce the risk of infection from COVID-19 (coronavirus).

Social distancing means we reduce the number of close physical and social contacts we have with one another.

When social distancing actions are combined with good personal hygiene measures the spread of a pandemic through the community can be slowed. This helps protect the most vulnerable members of the community and reduces the impact of the pandemic on essential, life-saving health services.

There are many actions individuals, employers and organisations can take now to promote social distancing and help reduce the risk of COVID-19 infection in our community.

For health enquiries, please contact NSW Health on 1800 022 222 or visit
