Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) update

Last updated: 17/06/2020

Nothing is more important to us than the health and wellbeing of our artists, audiences, visitors and staff.

As a result of nationwide measures to limit the spread of COVID-19, the building is currently closed to the public.

With restrictions beginning to ease across NSW, we’re busy working on plans for the reopening of Sydney Opera House and are excited about welcoming the community back to our venues and the wider precinct. We hope to provide an update on this soon.

While our doors remain closed, we are continuing to engage and inspire the community through our digital program – From Our House to Yours – featuring new and never-before-seen content as well as live performances broadcast direct from the Joan Sutherland Theatre stage.

Thank you for your ongoing understanding and support.
