Sydney Opera House launches live concerts, talks, podcasts and more — for free.

Fancy going to the opera this weekend? Well, now you can. Despite Sydney Opera House having to close its doors until mid-June in a precautionary move to curb the spread of coronavirus, the world-renowned performing arts centre has adjusted to the crisis very quickly.

Bringing its stages to living rooms around the world, Sydney Opera House has launched live concerts and a complete digital program aimed at spreading happiness in a time of chaos.

From our house to yours…

Personalizing its new platform, Sydney Opera House has named the initiative ‘From Our House to Yours’; the program includes regular full-length performances and talks, never-before-seen footage, podcasts, long-form articles and behind-the-scenes content from the Australian arts centre.

In addition to a variety of digital content that is available free-on-demand, new digital content will be released on the Opera House website every day from Wednesday to Sunday, with the next weekly schedule announced every Tuesday. This week’s schedule of upcoming events was released via Twitter:
