Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour is now recognised as one of the world’s greatest outdoor opera spectaculars alongside events such the Turandot at Luxor and Aida at the Forbidden City.

The annual event is a highlight of the Australian cultural calendar, attracting more than 250,000 attendees from around Australia and across the globe over the past six years and it’s easy to see why.

Set against the backdrop that is Sydney Harbour, the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the world famous Sydney Opera House, it’s a sight to make your Instagram pop as well as a memory to last a generation.

Opera Australia expects the 2018 season will continue that successful run, with Puccini’s La Bohème known as one of the world’s all-time favourite operas, and the inspiration behind Moulin Rouge and the musical Rent.

This new production of La Bohème is set in a wintery 1960’s Parisian landscape, featuring beautiful cobblestone laneways, glowing street lamps and classically bohemian costumes, along with fabulous special effects including snow falling on Sydney Harbour and fireworks illuminating the night sky.

See more information and get your tickets at the Opera Australia website.
