There's a great mix of international blockbusters and home-grown hits in Sydney's theatres this July. We're finally getting to see the National Theatre's much lauded production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time while The Book of Mormon is still going strong at the Sydney Lyric. 

But if you're looking for something local, there are plenty of options from major productions like Priscilla, Queen of the Desert (which is about to leave, and it should be the duty of every Australian to see our most successful theatrical export) and STC's The Long Forgotten Dream, to smaller scale works, like the hilarious Unqualified at Ensemble.

The opera season is in full-swing, with Aida, Lucia di Lammermoor and Rigolettobut if you're after something on the more intimate end of the theatrical scale, Bondi Feast is warming up Sydney's most famous beach.
