Opera Australia presents
Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour: Madama Butterfly

24 Mar 2023 to 23 Apr 2023

Opera Australia’s back with Sydney’s best night out

Under the stars, with fireworks every night as well as pop-up bars and eateries, this is “the most impressive outdoor event in Australia…You don’t need to understand opera to understand what makes the occasion great.” (Concrete Playground).

Take your seats overlooking ‘Paradise’ – complete with a bamboo grove, giant moon, and a rising sun floating on the harbour. The picture-perfect backdrop of the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge twinkles with thousands of city lights.

For innocent Cio-Cio-San, love flutters on wings of desire. For brash Pinkerton, a flight of fancy is irresistible. Puccini’s intimate ode to unrequited love has always been shocking. East meets West, devotion meets disregard, expectation meets disappointment. In the clash, Cio-Cio-San’s dreams are shattered.
