Dance | Opera | Classical Music | Theatre
Sydney Festival is a city-wide celebration of culture, creativity and the questioning mind. From the streets to the beach, in theatres, wharves and warehouses, it animates Sydney with a trailblazing program of theatre, music, dance, visual art and all the experimental in-between places of live performance.
As a dedicated commissioner of new Australian works, Sydney Festival showcases our nation's diverse storytellers to the world, whilst drawing the world's finest artists to Sydney.
Set below the famous white sails the Forecourt to the south and the Northern Broadwalk both offer patrons stunning harbour and city views and the backdrop for a once in a lifetime event. The Forecourt offers the largest capacity of any Opera House venue and has hosted a number of large-scale concerts including Florence and the Machine and Crowded House as well as welcoming international icons such as Oprah. The Forecourt has a standing capacity for up to 6000 general admission and the Northern Broadwalk has a standing capacity for up to 2400 general admission.
Every January, Sydney Festival starts the new year with a bang, transforming the city with a bold cultural celebration based on critical ideas and cutting-edge art and performance.
