Sydney Opera House announces daily Vivid-style shows
It's back, all year around.
Badu Gili is the newly announced Opera House sail show. The name, which translates to Water Lights, is about 7 minutes long and will show daily at sundown and 7pm, to light up the sails of Sydney Opera House with pieces contributed by countless different artists.
The name is in the Gadigal language, of the area's traditional land owners, while the show is a visual story told in celebration of the vibrancy, colour and art of Australia's Indigenous cultures. The spectacular performance, illuminating the Opera House's eastern Bennelong side will be as plainly visible as the Sydney Vivid displays, and is certain to make an impression over the year.
The first performance of Badu Gili will take place on 28 June. The date was chosen to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the 1967 referendum, and to mark the eve of Australia's NAIDOC week (the National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee).
If you're looking for a Sydney getaway, it might be time to take a look at your options for Opera House views, because for 14 minutes a day, they'll be delivering some of the best views in all of Australia.
