How to get the best out of your Dine & Discover vouchers

It’s never been a more affordable time to visit the Opera House. Here’s our guide to maximising value on your $150 Dine & Discover vouchers.

Dominic Ellis & Nicole Russo
Sydney Opera House

Special offer for FANGIRLS

See yourself in this subversive musical comedy about unapologetic love, identity and the underestimated power and passions of fandom.

Use your $25 Discover NSW Voucher for FANGIRLS performances between 28 July – 7 August and receive an additional $25 off your ticket. Redeem in person at the Box Office Monday to Sunday 9am – 5pm AEST or later if a performance is scheduled or call +61 2 9250 7777 Monday to Sunday: 9am - 5pm AEST.

How they work

Sydney is returning to normal and Sydneysiders are gradually starting to peer out of their caves, looking for assurance that it’s OK to have fun again.

Well it is OK. In fact, it’s encouraged. The NSW Government, like a parent during school holidays, has handed you a wad of cash and told you to ‘go wild’. And where better to go wild than the Sydney Opera House?

You can access your vouchers through the Service NSW app on your phone. To apply, hit the voucher button and then you'll just need to provide a couple documents proving your identity.

How to apply for your Dine & Discover voucher

With that wad of cash comes a few caveats:

  • You will receive six vouchers each valued at $25
  • Two of them are ‘Dine’ vouchers and two are ‘Discover’ vouchers
  • The Dine vouchers can be used at Opera Bar, Opera Kitchen, Portside, Bennelong and Theatre Bars 
  • The Discover vouchers can be used to book shows and experiences across Opera, Music, Theatre, Dance, Comedy, Talks and Tours, and unlike the Dine vouchers, can be claimed on our website!
  • The vouchers can we used any day of the week (including public holidays) until 30 June 2022

To claim your Discover voucher on the Opera House website, simply enter your code (left) to the Discover Voucher Code field in the checkout step (right). You can't use both of your Discover vouchers at once, but you can combine vouchers with someone else. Make sense?

What to use them on

Dinner and a show

Cash in your Dine & Discover vouchers all at once. Book one of our four dining options, then double down with an evening at the theatre. There are plenty of quality shows on the horizon, no matter your taste. Dance, musical theatre, kids shows, classical and contemporary music, opera – we've got it all. 

Better yet, use your Discover voucher on tickets to Fangirls and get an extra $25 off! See above for more details.

A drink and a feed

This is self-explanatory. Rock up anytime, QR code in hand, order yourself a pizza and a beverage from Opera Bar, and pay the difference – which will basically amount to pocket change. Alternatively, Opera Kitchen has now reopened as a 'market food hall' of sorts, featuring everything from ramen to pasta to cheese cake. Certainly worth a try.

Entertain kids these school holidays

School holidays are upon us. Can you believe it? Get those holiday plans sorted and get ready to belly laugh during Creation Creation, a comedy for young and old based on real-life interviews with people aged 8 – 102. Two fearless creators will take to the stage answering life’s biggest questions;  How are babies made? Is there other life in the universe? And can anyone lick their own elbow?

Stories from the Great Sandy Desert

Acclaimed around the world for its distinctive theatrical voice, powerful choreography, unique soundscapes and design, Bangarra Dance Theatre returns with SandSong. Under the vast Kimberley sky, the red pindan dust stretches across the desert homelands of the Walmajarri, where the ancient knowledge of People and of Country is preserved through Songlines that have endured for hundreds of generations. Sandsong tells the unique story of this Place and the survival of its People.

Fluttering beauty, caught and pinned, yet beautiful still

Opera Australia returns with Graeme Murphy’s arresting production of Madama Butterfly which takes a contemporary look at Puccini’s alluring heroine using a towering digital set. Fragments of film flutter across the stage, creating a dynamic backdrop for Murphy’s vision of Butterfly. He draws on his roots in choreography to capture the grace and gravity of a story that begins in rapturous love and ends in the cruellest heartbreak. Puccini’s sublime music imbues this ageless story with impossible beauty, from the irrepressible famous aria ‘One fine day’ to the intense finale

Spend big, save big

This is the fanciest option. So you’ve been cooped up at home waiting for that one big night to splurge? Well the time has come. The Dine vouchers should make a half-decent dent in the bill over at the incredible Bennelong (or should at least cover one of Peter Gilmore's luscious cherry jam lamingtons). 

Take a tour

Ever wanted to explore under the sails and beyond the stage but never made the effort? Uncover the stories, history and magic of the Opera House with our Opera House or Architectural Tours and get 60% off tickets with your Discover vouchers. Be a tourist in your own city for a fraction of the cost.
