Sydney siders will have the chance to see open captioned and audio described performances as part of the annual Sydney Festival, held from 7-29 January.

Performances with audio description include Beautiful Burnout at the Seymour Centre, West Side Story at Sydney Opera House and Buried City at the Belvoir St Theatre. One session of each will be audio described via headsets for people who are blind or vision impaired.

Beautiful burnout and ‘Tis pity she’s a whore will be available with open captions for selected performances.

These performances are part of the array of festivities including music, visual arts, theatre, dance and forums that will bring the city to life over the three weeks.

Visit the Sydney Festival website for information on captioned performances and audio described performances.

The program is available in alternate formats, including a Microsoft word document and an audio CD which can be ordered by calling Vision Australia on 02 9334 3260.
