The way that 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. Puccini takes these achingly human feelings and sets them to music — music that soars with the ecstasy of love, crackles with the pain of jealousy and cries with the agony of loss.
Some human emotions are too big for words alone, and for that, we have music. La Bohème exposes your soul to the feelings that only music can express.
Gale Edwards’ glittering production is set among the fishnets and fairy lights of 1930s bohemian Berlin.
You can enjoy the 9pm fireworks during the interval.
After the show, make your evening even more special with tickets to our exclusive midnight party. Held in the Northern Foyers of the Opera House, this event includes drinks, canapes and entertainment – and of course, a great vantage point for Sydney’s famous NYE 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.
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 are visible from the Southern Foyers inside Sydney Opera House at midnight, but you may not have a view of Sydney Harbour Bridge.
