About the Show

Look out! Stay away from those razor sharp teeth! From the safety of your home, get an up-close look at Erth’s Prehistoric World, presented by the Sydney Opera House. Travel to the bottom of the ocean to discover ancient bioluminescent creatures, then journey back to dry land to witness the gentle—and not so gentle—dinosaurs of Australia. Through a wild mix of life-like puppetry styles, you’ll meet Erth’s earliest life forms in this thrilling theatrical experience.

  3. In addition to touring the world with their long-running shows Erth’s Dinosaur Zoo (New Victory 2013) and Erth’s Prehistoric Aquarium, the company is collaborating with young people on a new show called ARC, exploring the preciousness of critically endangered animals facing extinction today.
