Proudly welcoming a new Sydney Theatre Company play, Cate Blanchett attended opening night of "The Secret River" on Saturday (January 12).

The Artistic Director of the company wore a shiny long-sleeved gold-and-black dress and heels as she posed with co-director Andrew Upton.

Beginning their final season as Co-Artistic Directors, "The Secret River" is based off of Kate Grenville's novel, following two families divided by culture and land in 19th century London.

In anticipation of the 2013 theatre season, Ms. Blanchett released a statement saying, "Originally conceived as a sign-off season for both of us, our 2013 season has a lot of our passions and favourite artists and is brimming with some of the relationships and partnerships that have inspired us during the last five years."
