OPENING NIGHT'S APPEARANCE CANCELLED
Theatre production Opening Night has cancelled its run at Sydney Festival due to health concerns related to fire-affected air quality in Sydney.
All ticket holders for Opening Night will be refunded in full automatically before 11 January. For any questions, please contact the Sydney Festival ticketing team on 02 8880 9214.
“Naturally, on behalf of the people of Sydney, we are extremely disappointed,” Sydney Festival Director Wesley Enoch said. “We have been in constant communication with all international and Australian based companies in relation to any concerns arising from the current fire situation in NSW and we have been buoyed by their responses.”
“Overwhelmingly, individual artists and companies – both local and from overseas – have responded by asking how they can help or what they can do to support relief efforts once they are on the ground in Sydney for the Festival.”
“The arts community understands the importance of carrying on and also acknowledges the powerful role that art, culture and the act of coming together can play at a time like this. Unfortunately, despite our best efforts and assurances, the Opening Night team has chosen not to come.”
Sydney Festival apologises sincerely for any inconvenience caused.
