Sydney Opera House Presents: Generations and Dynasties

From Monday 17 June 9:00pm

Join us for a brand new First Nations series taking place over three episodes, filmed at the Sydney Opera House. Combining conversation, storytelling and song, the series will feature three esteemed First Nations families.

Generations and Dynasties explores the rich tapestry of storytelling in First Nations culture, passed down from parents to children and among siblings. Like the symbolic passing of the story stick, each event reflects the importance of family, community, and culture. It’s a chance to honour these trailblazers and look at the creative journey across generations.
