Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour returns

400,000 people have been to Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour since it launched in 2012 and this year is an opportunity to revisit the show that started it all with a revival of Verdi’s iconic La Traviata.

Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour has become the outdoor event of the year. Opening on 27 March 2020 for an exclusive four-week season, thousands of people are expected to flock to the waterfront venue for a night to remember.

Opera Australia has assembled an all-star cast from Australia and around the world for this year’s over-water spectacular. Stunning Australian soprano Stacey Alleaume will make her debut as leading lady Violetta with her star-crossed lover Alfredo played by Kosovan Rame Lahaj, a role he has become famous for around the globe.

This is an opportunity to experience Sydney’s harbourside views at its best with luxury pop-up dining, bars set amongst the treetops, and impressive sunset vistas of the city skyline, Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House.

Guests looking to travel in style can catch a Water Taxi to the site, just like the cast members in Act II who arrive to the party scene by boat. The Water Taxi picks up at Man o’ War Steps at the Opera House and drops off at Andrew Boy Charlton pool, just a short walk to the site entrance.
