Make this your most glamorous and memorable New Year's Eve ever with a sublime performance at the Sydney Opera House. Opera Australia performs Puccini's famous opera 'La Boheme' in collaboration with the Australian Opera and Ballet Orchestra.
What to Expect
Nearly 120 years after Puccini wrote his smash-hit La Bohème, this story of first love still tops the list of most performed operas around the world. A poet, a painter, a musician and a philosopher walk into a bar to celebrate a sudden windfall in a lean winter. It’s Christmas Eve, and the poet has just felt the first pangs of great love. When a seamstress knocks on his door searching for candlelight, the pair fall in love faster than she can sing, "Yes, they call me Mimi…"
Between the ideals of love and art and the cruel realities of cold winters, bitter jealousies and empty pockets, two sets of lovers are trying to find their way. By the time the curtain falls, you’ll know the answer to an eternal question: Is love enough?
Bonus for New Year's Eve: the intermission coincides with the 9 pm fireworks show that takes place over Sydney Harbour, allowing you to enjoy front-row views as the fireworks light up Sydney Harbour Bridge and the skyline just outside the Opera House. Start the new year in style with this special performance at the Sydney Opera House.
