Overview

Experience the joy and heartache of the world’s most popular opera at Sydney’s best night out. Fireworks light up the sky at every performance and a giant chandelier shimmers over the harbour stage with 10,000 Swarovski crystals. Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour is “the ultimate Sydney experience” (Yahoo! Travel).

In 2020, Opera Australia presents La Traviata, the story that inspired Moulin Rouge, on a magnificent floating stage over Sydney Harbour.

Arrive early to enjoy drinks or dinner at one of the five pop-up bars and restaurants on site. Drink in the view as the setting sun glimmers over the city skyline. Then take your seats in the comfortable grandstand to enjoy “a ravishing visual spectacle” (Huffington Post).

This opera was amazing! It was an amazing French story! Since it is in French, they had screens providing subtitles in English and possibly Japanese I'm not 100 sure there. As you watched the opera, you could see the Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge in the background giving amazing views. Things to note: 1 It is outside, so beware of weather conditions. It ended up getting chilly that night and I wish I had a light jacket. 2 Eat before you go or after. They don't have a wide variety and the items they do have are quite costly. 3 You aren't allowed to take pictures during the performance but near intermission there were fireworks with the Opera House off in the background. Have your cameras ready for that!

Wonderful location with views of Sydney opera house and bridge in background. Excellent show and extremely well organised exit procedure to taxis, buses etc.

What an amazing performance! It met every expectation we had! Originally disappointed there was no performances at the Opera House, but the opera production of La Boheme on Sydney Harbour was mesmerizing. There is not a bad seat in the venue! It is an outdoor theater over looking the harbor with the Sydney Opera house in the background. Sound system, lighting, even electric screens telling what is going on in the production made the evening magical. At intermission, they had snow falling everywhere and a beautiful firework display! We went early and had a light dinner before the production. The staff helping attendees were so kind and helpful! The one thing we must mention to help those going, is to make a plan on how you will get there. If you can not walk long distance make sure your cab driver knows to let you off at the top of the outdoor theatre! Ours took us to the Opera House and we had a long walk around the harbor through the Botanical gardens which were beautiful, but very long walk! One last thing, be prepared for the cost of a taxi ride if not staying in the harbor area! They increase the starting meter charge for the event and it runs continuous. We were staying in the Darling Harbour Area and it was over 65 round trip and it was approximately 20 KM round trip. Wonderful Venue and highly suggest going if can.

This was an excellent experience seeing an opera under the stars and the performance was great. It rain prior to the performance but was lucky that it cleared in time for the performance. I would highly recommend this experience.The bonus was the stage, it was amazing when they used the tower crane and the fire works was beautiful.

Great if youre in the A section.

I booked in the B section, and I have to warn you there is a whole song where the stage pointlessly rises and view of the main performance is blocked! It was definitely worth seeing and the transport links at end were organised. Tip: move towards the empty seats in the middle if you see any.
