The OperAfter­noons sea­son con­tin­ues on Satur­day, November 18, at 3 p.m. with ‘Aida’ from Sydney Har­bour. There could be no grander set­ting for Verdi’s mas­ter­ful work than Sydney Har­bour, awash with the light of the city and the Sydney Opera House sil­hou­et­ted against the set­ting sun.

On Tues­day, November 21, at 7 p.m., and again on Satur­day, November 25, at 3 p.m. Gorey cinema presents ‘David Hock­ney at the Royal Academy of Art’.

Fea­tur­ing in-depth in­ter­views with Hock­ney, this re­veal­ing film fo­cuses on two ex­hi­bi­tions held in 2012 and 2016 at the Royal Academy of art in Lon­don.
