Sydney Opera House To Reopen
The icon readies for the return of audiences.
The Sydney Opera House is to welcome back audiences, announcing an enviable new program to mark its reopening on October 29.
Amongst the line-up is ‘Antidote’ – an annual festival of “action, ideas and change” led by Edwina Throsby, which will also feature author Kiley Reid, Dutch historian Rutger Bregman, Indigenous design advocate Jefa Greenaway and climate change researcher Rebecca Hunley, among others.
The curated calendar also features First Nations culture and storytelling in ‘Dance Rites’, new stand-up from Tom Gleeson as well as jazz, children’s programs and independent local artists.
The Sydney Theatre Company will also return to the stage with its production of ‘Rules for Living’.
“I’m thrilled that the easing of restrictions in NSW means we can now safely welcome artists, audiences and visitors back to the Opera House,” says Louise Herron, Sydney Opera House CEO.
Elsewhere, Bennelong restaurant is back with its elevated offerings and a program plating up not only food but also performances from the likes of Sydney Symphony Orchestra and Australian Chamber Orchestra, among others.
