Watch Free | From Our House To Yours - Digital Season
Highlights from the 2020 Digital Season - From Our House To Yours.
Providing a meeting place online for audiences to escape and connect, From Our House to Yours was created in March 2020 in response to COVID-19 to uplift and inspire audiences while the Opera House was temporarily closed to the public.
The weekly program featured full-length performances and talks, unreleased recordings and never-before-seen footage, as well as new and live-streamed performances from the Joan Sutherland Theatre stage.
From Our House to Yours played a vital role in maintaining the shared experience of attending art and cultural events for online audiences and communities, presenting entertaining, engaging and inspiring online programming whilst supporting the artistic community.
