Prepare to be swept away by the beauty of opera at one of Sydney's most iconic venues. This truly is one of Sydney's most inspiring attractions and your chance to immerse yourself in thrilling voices, lavish sets and and costumes and moving stories — opera has it all!
The Sydney Opera House was built for opera. Imagine the harbour sparkling with city lights and the waterfront bars buzzing with the anticipation of a great night out as you arrive. Visit the bar at the Northern Foyer and over look Sydney's magnificent harbour — perhaps indulge in a glass of champagne pre-show and before long it's time to take your seats. As the lights go down and the orchestra begins to play the real magic begins.
Thrilling voices, lavish sets and costumes, moving stories, great tunes — opera has it all!
The Merry Widow
The Merry Widow is a “shimmering all-singing, all dancing Broadway style show” (The Sydney Morning Herald), a frothy comedy packed with familiar waltzes and tuneful melodies.
A feisty, fearless heroine, a cocky bullfighter and a jealous lover are bound by fate in a vibrant production of this irresistible opera.
Opera like you see in the movies, with exquisite period dresses, lavish parties and a tragic ending.
A zany, exuberant story with weird and wonderful 20th century music, in an outrageous production by the inventive Barrie Kosky.
Dream the impossible dream with the knight-errant Don Quichotte (Don Quixote), as he seeks adventure, chases bandits and serenades the pretty girls.
There will be other customers attending the performance.
There are no rules about what to wear when attending the opera. It is always great fun to dress up for the occasion and make a glamorous night of it, but dressing up is not mandatory.
Tickets will be available from the venue box office 1 hour prior to the performance start time.
