Sydneysiders know how to have fun at the opera, whether it’s at the world’s most iconic theatre, on the harbour ooh-ing and ahh-ing at fireworks bursting over a waterborne stage, or at that beloved Sydney tradition, Opera in the Domain.

Every year we head to the park in our thousands to hear our brightest stars, under the stars and anyone who claims opera is an elitist art form should look at the size of the crowd at this cultural, communal celebration. 

It’s time to crack a beer with the barber of Seville; toast La Traviata, and share some Pavlova with Pagliacci and experience a midsummer night’s dream that brings opera to the people.

Dress up – or not – it’s your night to enjoy powerful, impassioned voices soaring over a full  orchestra in opera’s most celebrated arias and duets. Good times.
