There is always a risk of unfavourable weather conditions. Opera in The Gardens is an open-air event. The venue is completely uncovered. Opera in the Gardens committee is committed to proceeding with the performance even in doubtful weather conditions.
The performance will proceed if there are light, intermittent showers. We therefore recommend that guests bring warm and rainproof clothing. Please note that although umbrellas can be brought to the site, out of consideration for other members of the audience, they cannot be used during the performance.
The performance will only be cancelled if the weather poses a threat to the safety of performers or the audience. Cancellation will occur in the event of heavy rain and strong winds as the comfort and safety of the audience and performers are paramount.
The event may be cancelled at 10.00am if the Bureau of Meteorology advises that extreme conditions will prevail. The performance may also be cancelled even after the show has commenced.
