Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour —
La Bohème

Australia’s iconic outdoor opera.

At Fleet Steps, Mrs Macquarie's Point.

“The ultimate Sydney experience”
Yahoo! Travel

Australia’s iconic outdoor opera.

Experience the romance of the original Bohemian love story at the magnificent Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour.

You’ll taste the best of Sydney in a single night out: food, fireworks, singing and spectacle under the stars. 

La Bohème opens your soul to emotions too big for words. As six friends bare their hearts and souls in a Parisian winter, you’ll fall in love, flare with passion and ache with loss, right alongside them.

The site opens at 5pm, so arrive as the sun is setting over the city skyline and take in the view with a glass of bubbles as dusk falls. Meet for dinner at one of the pop-up bars and restaurants, then sit back in a grandstand at the water’s edge and immerse yourself in Puccini’s passionate music.
