Andrea Chénier at the Sydney Opera House

Thursday 08 August 2019 to Sunday 11 August 2019

No trip to Sydney is complete without a visit to its most famous building. And the best thing to do when you visit the Sydney Opera House is to come inside and see an opera performance.

As the French Revolution settles, the poet Andrea Chenier watches its leaders grow more and more oppressive.

Despite his wealthy upbringing, he speaks out on behalf of the poor, and attracts the attention of powerful revolutionaries.

But it is Chenier’s love for the aristocrat Maddalena that puts him most at risk. Her family’s servant, Gerard, is also in love with Maddalena, and he uses his power among the revolutionaries to take his rival down.
