The Sydney Opera House precinct is the thriving epicentre of the annual Vivid Sydney festival – home to the stunning Lighting of the Sails and the city’s most ambitious live music program, Vivid LIVE.
Under the spectacular sails projections, the Opera House will offer an exciting range of entertainment and experiences – Vivid-inspired menus, late-night live music, the best seats in the house at the pop-up bar and café scene and VIP backstage tours.
From 23 May – 9 June, dine with us as part of your Vivid Sydney experience:
OPERA BAR – Opera Bar will be transformed into a garden of neon, a lush, green paradise with neon lights, video productions and an interactive art wall. Sydney’s favourite harbourside bar and restaurant venue will also present its own live entertainment and designer cocktails.
OPERA KITCHEN – Delicious seafood, freshly made burgers and Asian cuisine will be on offer at Opera Kitchen during the day and early evening. Between 8pm and 11pm, a special late night menu will feature prawn wontons, duck pancakes and dumplings.
THE CORNER HO– USE AT THE HO– USE – Bondi dining favourite The Corner House delighted summer visitors to the Opera House with its Garden Bar outside the Western Foyers. Now the Corner House team will create an exciting pop-up café and bar scene with a special winter menu during Vivid.
BISTRO MOZART and THEATRE BARS – Pre-theatre dining and drinks are available at Bistro Mozart, or enjoy bubbles, cocktails and snacks at one of the many Theatre Bars before a Vivid LIVE show.
FOOD TRUCKS – A selection of Sydney’s favourite food trucks will be parked on the Opera House precinct offering a quick bite to people following the Vivid Light Trail.
VIVID TOURS – During Vivid Sydney, two special guided tours will explore the heart of Australia’s most iconic building and bring to life the venues, foyers and rehearsal rooms under its sails. The Sydney Opera House tour will celebrate Vivid LIVE with a one-hour nightly adventure inside the illuminated shells and into the grand theatre spaces. The VIP backstage experience will go behind the scenes of Vivid LIVE, exploring areas usually reserved for stage crew and performers. Take to the stage, visit a dressing room and see the Opera House’s state-of-the-art recording studio, then finish with a continental breakfast or dinner.
