Keeping you safe at the theatre
We're excited to welcome you safely back to the theatre in 2022.
Our performances will comply with all Public Health Orders and adhere to our epidemiologist-approved COVID-Safe Plan, including any requirement at the time of the performance that audience members be vaccinated. Specific details for each venue will be published below as soon as it becomes available.
Please familiarise yourself with our COVID-Safe practices so we can all play our part in keeping our community safe:
There is a flexible cancellation policy for your tickets, should you need to stay home.
Present proof of full vaccination. From 15 December until at least 31 January 2022, the Opera House will continue to require that all visitors aged 16 years and over entering the building are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 (unless medically exempt). Under 16s not fully vaccinated must be accompanied by a fully vaccinated adult. Check-in processes will be in place for verifying proof of vaccination upon entry.
Service NSW check-in. On arrival at the Opera House, you and your guests will be required to sign-in using the Service NSW QR code.
Bring and wear a mask. Face masks continue to be required for patrons aged 12 years and over while inside the foyers and theatres, including during the performance (unless medically exempt). We highly recommend children aged 11 years and younger wear a mask at all times. Please bring your own mask.
Please don’t visit if you feel unwell, are displaying any of the COVID-19 symptoms as identified by NSW Health; are required to self-isolate or quarantine. Please check the latest case locations and alerts, and act on NSW Health advice.
There is a flexible cancellation policy for your tickets, should you need to stay home. Our General Terms and Conditions for Tickets and Attendance at Events are available here.
Get together, but keep apart. Practice physical distancing (1.5 metres whenever possible), follow the separate entry and exit points, screening and bag-check procedures, and physically distance in all queues.
Practise good hygiene, by washing your hands regularly with soap, using hand sanitiser, covering sneezes and coughs, and disposing of tissues promptly. Dettol hand washing tips are on display in all bathrooms.
Pay with card. Contactless payment methods are strongly encouraged, so please bring a credit or debit card for onsite purchases.
Visiting the Sydney Opera House when you are unwell puts yourself and others at risk. Attending while under quarantine or isolation orders is prohibited, and if you appear to have COVID-19 symptoms we may need to deny you entry or ask you to leave to minimise the risk to others. Please also consider your own safety and well-being and whether attending is the right thing for you.
