Along with the Sydney Harbour Bridge, the Sydney Opera House is one of the NSW capital city’s most iconic features – and if you are planning to be in Sydney between March 22 and April 12, you will have the opportunity to see the harbour come alive in tribute to one of the world’s most beloved operas.
Bizet’s Carmen will be the show-stopping performance at this year’s Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour, and whether you live in Sydney or are planning a trip to the harbour city over the Easter break, this is one production you won’t want to miss.
In a nod to the production’s Spanish storyline, Sydney Harbour will be transformed into a bustling fiesta – you will be able to order tapas and other pre-performance bites and drinks from the restaurants along Circular Quay.
Then, prepare to take your seat as the harbour transforms into a stunning Spanish setting – complete with fireworks and fiery, passionate music, all performed on a unique floating stage. Carmen features some of the world’s best-loved songs – listen for the Toreador Song, Habanera, Seguidilla and Flower Song.
Carmen is packed with drama and show-stopping theatrics – and from the rich costumes to the incredible music and dancing, you won’t be able to take your eyes away from the action onstage. Directed by acclaimed Australian theatre veteran Gale Edwards – who has previously been involved with productions of La Boheme and The Boy From Oz – this is one performance you won’t want to miss.
Whether you are an opera buff or this is your first introduction to this type of musical theatre, you won’t be disappointed by the stunning spectacle of Carmen. Ticket packages start from only $79 – make your booking today so you don’t miss out!
