Producers of the show today announced that the planned Sydney and Melbourne seasons of the show will no longer be going ahead.
A statement from the producers read as follows:
Producers Opera Australia and John Frost are disappointed to announce that both the Sydney and Melbourne seasons of The Secret Garden are unable to proceed for reasons outside our control stemming from the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and related government restrictions that have been implemented to reduce the spread of the virus.
While this decision is a devastating blow to all the performers and crews involved, ensuring the health and well-being of artists, staff and the community as a whole is the absolute priority.
We thank our patrons, staff, sponsors and the community for their patience and support as we work through these difficult times.
Patrons who purchased tickets to The Secret Garden will receive an email from the official ticketing provider shortly outlining details of the refund process.
