Experience One of World’s Most Spectacular Operas on Sydney Harbour
La Bohème Inspired Musicals Moulin Rouge and Rent
Described as one of the top four open-air opera events in the world, Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour is now celebrated as one of the highlights of the Australian cultural calendar.
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.
Flurries of snow will take the outdoor opera experience to a whole new level with this stunning new production of La Bohème set in a wintery 1960’s Parisian streetscape, featuring beautiful cobblestone laneways, glowing street lamps and classically bohemian costumes.
The custom-built site has an impressive range of dining and drinking options that make the most of the magnificent harbour views. The stunning Platinum Club – a pop up dining room, bar and lounge set amongst the tree tops – offers fine dining before the show, high tea and drinks at interval. Dinner and show packages are available with variable components that include a three-course dinner, interval drinks, program and performance.
To complete a glamorous night out, guests can arrive at the site by Water Taxi. Pick up points are around Sydney Harbour, dropping guests at Andrew (Boy) Charlton Pool, just metres from the entrance to Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour.
