Vivid

Vivid LIVE is an artist-driven festival, defined by special commissions, one-off events and Australian premieres. Our venues, foyers, rehearsal rooms, and recording studios will encourage the legendary, the influential and the emerging from a range of genres to make the Opera House their own; to create something as momentous and innovative as the Architecture itself. In addition, as part of the festival each year different artists are commissioned to create digital works which are projected onto the sails of the building.
