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.

Interval is timed for the 9pm fireworks and the Sydney Opera House stays open well past the midnight fireworks.

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

Some fireworks can be viewed from the Southern Foyers inside Sydney Opera House at midnight, but you may not have a view of Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Presented by Opera Australia.
