59 Productions (UK / USA) Sydney exclusive

This year, Vivid LIVE has commissioned award-winning international artists 59 Productions to create a new projected artwork for the sails of the Sydney Opera House, Vivid LIVE’s most public event. Lauded for developing ‘the most sophisticated use of film in the theatre to date’ (Metro) and creating ‘an entirely new art form’ (The Guardian), 59 Productions will now take the iconic building on a dramatic journey through time – from the birth of architecture and civilization through to the pinnacle of human and technological achievement.

Welcome to the best seats in the House for Vivid LIVE.

During Vivid LIVE the Sydney Opera House will offer an exciting range of entertainment and experiences, including VIVID-inspired menus, late-night live music, winter’s best pop-up bar and cafe scene, as well as bespoke guided tours.

Where to eat 

Sip a cocktail over a tasting plate to live music at Opera Bar; settle among the outdoor heaters at Opera Kitchen for fresh seafood, burgers and Asian cuisine; or visit our latest pop-up bar, café by day and restaurant by night.

You can also sample the fare from several food trucks on the Opera House forecourt and then explore the Vivid LIGHT installations. Or take in a delicious dinner at Bistro Mozart or refreshment at one of our many Theatre Bars before a Vivid LIVE show.
