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.

Tonight, LaBeouf, Rönkkö & Turner present #ANDINTHEEND, a collaborative performance project exclusive to BingeFest.

From midnight tonight, visitors are invited into the Joan Sutherland Theatre, one by one, to participate by delivering a message or statement to the trio inside. The sole requirement is that each participant’s message should begin with the words: “AND IN THE END…” Visitors are free to interpret this request in any way they see fit.

Once communicated to the artists, visitors' messages will be relayed to the world during a continuous broadcast, live-streamed online at andintheend.sydneyoperahouse.com. At the same time, their words will be beamed out across a 60-metre-long LED display at Sydney Opera House.

Performance Dates: December 17 (11:59pm – 6am), December 18 (10pm – 6am)
Visitors will be allowed to queue beneath the Sydney Opera House Monumental Stairs from 10pm on Saturday 17 December and 8pm on Sunday 18 December for entry to LaBeouf, Rönkkö & Turner. Entry is not guaranteed.
This event is free to attend.

LaBeouf, Rönkkö & Turner’s open-ended project implicitly asks: where are we headed? what might it all mean? and what is important in the end?
