New Year's Eve at Sydney Opera House
New Year's Eve is the night when Sydney puts on the bling, kicks up its heels and shows the world what a gorgeous thing it is, as a festival of fire explodes across the midnight sky.

Make this your most glamorous and memorable New Year ever

Ringside seats to the greatest show on earth are hard to come by, but we've saved some great ones, and you're invited. Be entertained at the Opera Gala, featuring favourites by Verdi, Puccini, Rossini and more.

Then, with a heart full of song, watch the fireworks the whole world watches. Interval is timed for the 9pm fireworks and the Sydney Opera House stays open well past the midnight fireworks.

There’s nowhere in the world like Sydney on New Year's Eve and there's nowhere closer to the action than Sydney Opera House. Make this your most glamorous and memorable New Year ever.

For the best viewing of the midnight fireworks, book tickets to the exclusive Midnight Party, overlooking Sydney Harbour with fantastic views of the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

If you’re unable to attend the Midnight Party, there are a limited number of viewing areas you'll be able to access following the performance. Please note that these spaces are limited and cannot be guaranteed.

Presented by Opera Australia.
