Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour is the ultimate Sydney experience” 
Yahoo! Travel

Take a harbourside setting with an unrivalled view of the famous Sydney skyline. Build a pop-up opera house, complete with bars, restaurants and tiered seating. Add a 3.5-tonne chandelier sparkling with 10,000 crystals, 80 performers on stage, party boats in the harbour, spectacular dance and an explosion of fireworks, and you’ve got a night like no other.

Your evening starts with drinks or dinner at one of the five pop-up bars and restaurants on site. Drink in the view as the setting sun glimmers over the city skyline. Then take your seats in the comfortable grandstand to enjoy “a ravishing visual spectacle” (Huffington Post).

Experience the joy and heartache of the world’s most popular opera, La Traviata, at Sydney’s best night out. Verdi’s music offers flying melodies, rousing drinking songs and heartbreaking duets in the opera that you’ll recognise from Pretty Woman and that inspired Moulin Rouge.
