Sydney’s Opera Theatre Re-named

The name of Dame Joan Sutherland has been immortalised with the Opera Theatre of Sydney’s Opera House re-named in her honour.

Concert halls have been named after benefactors (Carnegie), Royalty (The Royal Albert Hall and the Queen Elizabeth Hall) and musicians (the Bruckner Hall in Linz and the Bartok Hall in Budapest. It is a rare honour, and an indication of the impact that Dame Joan had on the operatic arts in Australia and around the world, that Sydney’s home of operatic performance is to bear her name.
