Relive the magic of the first ever production at Sydney Opera House!
In 1973 the Sydney Opera House opened in spectacular fashion with Prokofiev’s epic stage adaptation of ‘War and Peace’.
The production marked the first performance in the iconic building that we’ve called home for almost five decades, and was celebrated by critics and audiences alike.
War and Peace has more than 70 characters listed in the libretto, which allowed plenty of our most celebrated singers to be involved in that historic first night.
The dazzling production was filmed for ABC TV, and you can now stream it for free, in its entirety, on OA | TV: Watch now.
