Sydney Opera House Celebrates Summer with Daily Discounted Tickets
Circa’s ‘Peepshow’ & The Choir of Man Featured
To kick start 2021 and as part of the NSW Government’s ‘Summer in the City’ program, the Sydney Opera House are offering $21 summer tickets for its line-up of summer events, performances and experiences to increase access to Sydney’s cultural offering over the summer months.
The offer will run through to the end of March, with tickets released on the Opera House website at midday each day for selected shows the following day.
Sydney Opera House CEO Louise Herron AM said: “After being closed for much of last year, it has been wonderful to safely welcome audiences, staff and artists back to our theatres and restaurants. We have launched 2021 with an uplifting and entertaining summer program. I hope as many people as possible can take advantage of our $21 summer tickets to enjoy a performance at their Opera House.”
The $21 tickets will be available for select performances in the Opera House’s summer program of magic, illusion, music, and shows for the young and young at heart, including:
The Listies’ Hamlet: Prince of Skidmark – a hilarious twist on the classic Shakespearean tale for ‘kidults’ aged 5+, with plenty of extravagant costumes, gags and expertly timed stage magic, from 4 January to 22 January in the Playhouse. Hamlet: Prince of Skidmark is a side-splitting extravaganza that shatters the fourth wall and glues it back together with turbo-charged story-telling and silliness. Featuring ninjas, ghosts, swords, dinosaurs, zombies and supersonic gags, this is a very cheeky, utterly irreverent riff on Hamlet created especially for kids.

The Choir of Man – the ultimate feel-good show, with singing, dancing and loads of laughs, returns to the Studio from 17 February to 4 April, following sold-out seasons in 2019.

NSW Minister for the Arts Don Harwin said: “After a challenging year for the arts sector, the return of live performance and events in recent months has been an important moment for artists, arts workers and the wider community. As our city continues to carefully manage the impacts of the pandemic, I hope this initiative provides more opportunities for the public to explore our cultural icon over summer.”
Each day at midday the public will be able to purchase up to four tickets per transaction across a range of shows. The $21 summer tickets hub on the Opera House website will be updated daily at midday with the shows and experiences on offer for the following day.
