The Opera Gala
Step into the Sydney Opera House's magnificent Concert Hall to watch the Opera Gala concert. Be entertained with favourites by Verdi, Puccini, Rossini and more.
You'll hear some of Opera Australia's finest performers join with the 60 piece Opera Australia Orchestra for a concert of some of opera's most impressive arias.
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.
