From Our House to Yours is a digital program put together by the Sydney Opera House. It comes after the venue had to close in March and cancel its events until July due to Covid-19, including festivals like Vivid and Unwrapped, and performances by The Australian Ballet, Sydney Theatre Company and Opera Australia.

The digital program will consist of archival performances, talks, podcasts and more. Weekly schedules will be announced on Tuesdays, with new content released daily from Wednesday to Sunday. Since the events the Sydney Opera House typically hosts are quite varied, the content it's managing to find and put up is too, and is suitable for a wide range of audiences. There's even a category dedicated to kids.

Already released performances include ones by Missy Higgins, Bangarra Dance Theatre, Sydney Philharmonia Choirs and Sydney Symphony Orchestra. Discussions and talks posted include ones with Chelsea Manning, Nigella Lawson, David Walliams, Clementine Ford and Flex Mami. Once released, all stay available on an On Demand basis.

If you'd like to support the arts organisations in Australia and keep up with their content online, I recommend checking out The Australian Ballet and the Australian Chamber Orchestra, which have both put digital seasons together too. The Sydney Theatre Company has also organised a video series that sees actors, directors and writers put together short videos, often of them performing excerpts from plays.
