BOOKINGS

Performances

La Bohème

With the flickering of a candle, love sparks. Two hands meet in the dark and four friends’ lives are changed forever.

The way first love grabs hold and floods you with something you’ve never felt before. The fire that burns the first time jealousy flares. The growing up you do in the instant that you realise love can’t last forever….

Company: Opera Australia

Conductor: Dane Lam

Director: Gale Edwards

Turandot

Torture and death mean nothing. Freedom means everything. Can the princess win her heart’s desire?

Puccini’s fantasy opera of poetry and myth is set in an exotic world where fear and love go hand in hand and death is always just around the corner. ‘Nessun dorma’ is just one of its magnificent moments.

Company: Opera Australia

Conductor: Tahu Matheson

Director: Graeme Murphy

Salome

Beneath desire, depravity. Beneath lust, bloodlust. Beneath the veils, everything is laid bare.

Strauss’ taboo-breaking opera strips back Oscar Wilde’s play to its core: a gripping journey to the outer edges of human behaviour. The music is at once ravishing and repellent. Strauss augments an enormous orchestra with organ, harps and celestas. The effect is a web of exotic melodies, enticing rhythms and intriguing dissonance, famously on display in the ‘Dance of the Seven Veils’.

Company: Opera Australia

Conductor: Johannes Fritzsch

Director: Gale Edwards

Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour – West Side Story

Tonight, tonight the world is wild and bright. Going mad, shooting sparks into space!

In 2019, West Side Story takes the iconic stage at Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour. Raise a glass as the sun sets, drink in the view and enjoy the enthralling show, complete with live orchestra hidden beneath the dramatic stage and fireworks in the balmy night air.
On the mean streets of New York’s West Side, two rival gangs strut their stuff. But when a Jet falls for a Shark, the stage is set for a rumble. Their wistful love story is studded with infectious songs including ‘Somewhere’, ‘Maria’, ‘I Feel Pretty’, ‘America’, ‘Cool’ and of course, ‘Tonight’.

Concept: Jerome Robbins

Conductor: Guy Simpson

Director: Francesca Zambello

Accommodation

Intercontinental Hotel, Sydney
