A setting like the magnificent Sydney Harbour demands a spectacular opera, so prepare for a performance of huge proportions at 'Aida' by the Handa Opera. A royal love triangle, a war and the famous triumphal march with Egyptians en masse will light up the waters around the floating stage with the Sydney Harbour Bridge as backdrop. For four weeks only in 2015Verdi masterfully positions the intimate affairs of the heart against the grandeur of the universe — where kingdoms rise and fall, and the sands of time grind onward in 'Aida.'
Aida is the biggest opera ever performed on this opera stage. What grander setting could there be for such a performance than Sydney Harbour itself, awash with the light of the city and the Sydney Opera House silhouetted against the setting sun? Amid all of the spectacle, the famous triumphal march, battle scenes and ancient temples, there's an emotional heart to this time-honored story.

Opera on the Harbour will open on March 27, 2015 for an exclusive four-week season, playing nightly on a purpose-built floating stage on Sydney Harbour. With the Sydney Opera House and the Harbour Bridge as a backdrop, this is a musical performance you won't forget.

Available for four weeks only from March 27 to April 26, 2015, Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour has become a huge part of the cultural landscape, combining all of the things Sydney does best: world-class opera, Champagne and fine dining, and sunsets and spectacle on the Harbour's edge.

This was the highlight of my day in Sydney--magnificent--thanks for suggesting it--a once in a lifetime treat

one would assume that going to the opera in Sydney Aus. would naturally mean going to the Sydney Opera House; not so, but the best thing is seeing a great opera on the water with a view of both the opera house and the bridge...spectacular experience!
