Full description
No trip to Sydney is complete without a visit to the Sydney Opera House, the city’s most famous building. And what better to do when visiting the Sydney Opera House than to spend a pleasant evening inside enjoying an opera performance.

The season features some of the world’s favorite operas from composers such as Puccini, Verdi and Bizet. No matter what sort of entertainment you're in the mood for, there's always an opera to fit the bill.

Typically, performances start at 07:30 PM and run for 2-3 hours, with an interval or 2 for you to enjoy a drink at the bar and enjoy the harbor view.

All performances have full English subtitles projected on a screen above the stage. Performances of Aida will also have simplified Chinese subtitles.
