Price : From $196

Experience an opera, but not as you have ever seen before for your fantastic Sydney vacation! Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour offers an unforgettable, remarkable evening of music, dance, and fireworks with the glistening Sydney Harbour as its backdrop. A great way to enhance your amazing trip to Sydney! Now that’s the way to spend an evening if you are visiting Sydney during March – April. You can excitedly join this ultimate Opera experience and watch an incredible, breathtaking outdoor opera performance under the Milky Way.

Find yourself seeing the Sydney Harbour from a unique perspective! Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour is performed at Mrs Macquaries Point, which is at the tip of the Royal Botanic Gardens. The stage floating above Sydney Harbour is truly awe-inspiring as it shows off a magnificent backdrop that includes the Sydney Opera House, Harbour Bridge, and city skyscrapers. Remarkable! Notice that one of the most brilliant aspects of the open theatre’s design is the housing of the Australian Opera and Ballet Orchestra underneath the stage- they have a complete sound ‘shell’ with the music projected out into the audience via hundreds of hidden speakers. Experience it all yourself and make your Australia tours even more amazing!

Go ahead, drink and dine in style! Essentially a pop-up opera house, Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour includes bars and restaurants, where you can dine pre-show. Eat up! These range from cheap and cheerful to fine dining. Which will suit you for the evening? Be sure to arrive early (opens at 5pm) to watch the sun set over Sydney Harbour with a glass of champagne. Such a beautiful moment that you’ll forget!

Make a wonderful night of it! Don’t hesitate to extend your night and take a short taxi ride from the Botanic Gardens to one of the most elegant restaurants and bars in the city center after the impressive performance. Until midnight, experience the ultimate luxury as you dine on modern Cantonese specials in a lavish French-colonial setting at Mr Wong. Then, find yourself heading next door to Palmer & Co, a 1920s-style bar serving an extensive menu of spirits and specialty cocktails. Drink away the night! Let the barmen whip you up a tasty Manhattan Cooler – Havana Club aged rum, lemon sherbet, citrus, and red wine. And there’s a good selection of charcuterie, if you’re still hungry!

Sit back and enjoy a spectacular night of opera under the stars at Handa Opera's performance of La Traviata. See that the dramatic tale unfolds on an open-air floating stage that’s impressively settled on the Sydney Harbour shore with breathtaking, stunning views of the Sydney Opera House, Harbour Bridge, and city skyline in the background. Take your convenient choice of seating reserve under the stars for this must-see production by Opera Australia that plays for four weeks only in March and April 2020. Be sure to be there as you won’t want to miss this!
