Happy World Theatre Day! We're celebrating the re-opening of our beloved Joan Sutherland Theatre. Named after the legendary Australian opera singer, we have worked tirelessly to upgrade a theatre that has been operating continuously since it first opened in 1973.

We interviewed soprano Danielle de Niese, Opera Australia's Production Manager James Wheeler and Set Designer Michael Scott-Mitchell to hear what they had to say about the changes to their home venue.
