    • Hi Wendy,

      I actually got an email this morning stating that the 2021 Opera in the Domain is not proceeding.

      Looking at The Royal Botanic Garden Sydney website’s event calendar, I can’t see any musical/concert events listed – just a few children’s events.

      All i can suggest at this point is to keep an eye on the event calendar for when things are announced. As I am currently managing 10 travel websites around Australia, I can say that most large scale events have not been confirmed or cancelled for early next year.
