Opera Performance on Sydney Harbour

  • Location: Sydney, Australia
  • Duration: 2 hours 30 minutes (approx.)
  • Tour code: 2554HARBOUR
A setting like the magnificent Sydney Harbour demands a spectacular opera, so prepare for a performance of huge proportions at 'Turandot' by the Handa Opera. An exotic fantasy of a death-marked love told with salt in the air, light on the sails will light up the waters around the floating stage with the Sydney Harbour Bridge as backdrop for four weeks only in 2016.
Set in China, Turandot, a beautiful yet cold princess, tests her suitors with three riddles. Any incorrect answer leads to death. The brave yet selfish Prince Calaf tries his luck and succeeds, but Turandot still refuses to marry him.

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? Opera on the Harbour will open on March 24, 2016 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 24 to April 24, 2016, Opera on the 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.
