Music Talks

Music Talks

Like the dancers on stage, musicians and conductors are powerful storytellers. In these free talks, Music Director and Chief Conductor Nicolette Fraillon will chat about our 2017 composers and their works; giving you greater insight into the powerful works of art you’re about to hear. Seating is limited so come early to grab your seat!

Please also note, Music Talks that take place at The Sydney Opera House will have seating on the steps of the Joan Sutherland Northern Foyer.  Cushions are provided and limited chairs are available upon request.

Seating will be provided for Music Talks that take place at The Capitol during The Sleeping Beauty and Alice's Adventures in Wonderland seasons.
