On a freezing Christmas Eve, love sparks. Two hands meet in the dark and four friends’ lives change forever.
Dress up to the nines, kick up your heels and leave the crowds behind as you stroll towards the iconic sails.
Enjoy a magnificent pre-performance dinner or a drink overlooking Sydney Harbour before you take your seats for a sumptuous production of Puccini’s La Bohème.
When Mimì meets Rodolfo, it’s love at first touch. They head out to bustling Café Momus, where the feisty Musetta and Marcello rekindle their relationship. But even the deepest love can’t warm a freezing winter. The Bohemians have some growing up to do.
Some 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. The music soars with the ecstasy of love, crackles with the pain of jealousy and cries with the agony of loss.
Set among the fishnets and fairy lights of 1930s Berlin, this is the final season of one of our most popular productions.
Stellar soprano, Valeria Sepe, sings the role of Mimì. Kang Wang sings as the poet, Rodolfo. Lorenzo Passerini conducts.
After the show, make your evening unforgettable with tickets to our exclusive Midnight Party. Held in the Northern Foyers of the Opera House, this event includes drinks, canapés and entertainment — and of course, a great vantage point for Sydney’s famous NYE fireworks.
There’s nowhere in the world like Sydney on New Year’s Eve, and there’s nowhere closer to the action than Sydney Opera House.
So go on, make this your most glamorous New Year ever.
If you don’t have tickets to the Midnight Party, there are a limited number of outdoor viewing areas you’ll be able to access following the performance. Please note that these spaces are limited and cannot be guaranteed.
Some fireworks can be viewed from the Southern Foyers inside Sydney Opera House at midnight, but you may not have a view of Sydney Harbour Bridge.
