The Show Must Go On(Line)
Sydney Opera House’s heady new digital event slate delivers cultured evenings to your couch, popcorn optional.
A little bit of culture might just be what’s needed right now (that and a chance to stretch the legs on the currently garaged DBS Superleggera). And providing it is The Sydney Opera House.
‘From Our House To Yours’ is the title of the OH’s new digital program – a series of live recordings, full-length performances, never-before-seen footage, as well as podcasts, articles, videos and more.
Each week, from Wednesday through Sunday night, tune in from the living room to the laptop to engage with a range of artistic endeavours.
Tonight that means Missy Higgins live from The Forecourt from 6pm – in an engaging performance from 2019.
A little more cerebral, tomorrow (April 2) sees artist and author of ‘Know My Name’, Chanel Miller, talk to All About Women festival director Edwina Throsby, while Friday means movement with 2019’s ‘Dance Rites’ – Australia’s First Nations dance competition.
Front row seats are then available Saturday for Sydney Symphony Orchestra’s ‘Beethoven Nine – Ode to Joy’. Sunday then sees The Writer’s Room deliver some of comedy’s brightest talents such as Josh Thomas, as well as the writers of Rick and Morty.
The Opera House’s digital season will be ongoing, with further updates to come as they further raid the archives to offer more memorable and thought-provoking moments from world-class artists, musicians, writers, thinkers and more.
