Sidney Opera House

Performers of Opera Australia’s new Otello production were ordered to self-isolate after a construction worker tested positive to COVID-19. Sydney’s lockdown was extended one week.

And the Sidney Opera says: « In line with the NSW Government’s extension to the stay-at-home order, the Opera House will remain closed until Friday 16 July. »

According to Australian media, an internal memo from Opera Australia advised all who attended the Opera House across six days to test and self-isolate. The isolation order extends to their families and other householders. This is expected to capture members of the orchestra as well as principal singers.

Opera Australia announced that performances of Aida, Atilla and next week’s Otello opening night have been postponed.
