The Sydney Opera House’s new digital initiative – From Our House to Yours – offers full-length, live-streamed performances and talks, never-before-seen footage, podcasts and playlists, long-form articles, behind-the-scenes and children’s content.
Join charismatic tour guide Declan on a brand new online tour of the Opera House’s backstage spaces – from the cavernous scenery dock, to the fly tower where up to 80 bars of complex scenery, lights and even performers are suspended over the stage. There’s even a peek inside the dressing rooms where renowned prima ballerinas, lead sopranos and stars from the world of contemporary music get ready before the show.
Digital content is available free on demand. Every day from Wednesday to Sunday new content will be released on the Opera House website for people to enjoy on their laptops, mobile phones or in their living rooms. Click here to view the full program.
A 360° experience capturing one of the world’s busiest performing arts centres between the acts — waking up, in rehearsal and at rest — featuring the outstanding young Australian soprano Nicole Car, cellist and the Sydney Symphony Orchestra’s Director of Artistic Planning, Benjamin Schwartz and the Sydney Symphony Orchestra itself under the baton of David Robertson, Chief Conductor and Artistic Director. Created in partnership with the Google Cultural Institute. Click here to view.
In addition to the tour above, Sydney Opera House worked with the Google Cultural Institute to collate 53 online exhibits. The collection allows audiences around the world to explore the living story of Australia’s iconic Sydney Opera House as never before. The exhibits weave together rare archival photography, celebrated performances, early architectural drawings, historical documents, little-known interviews and Street View imagery to tell the story of the Opera House in an entirely new way.
