Owner description: No trip to Sydney is complete without seeing an opera at the Sydney Opera House. Opera Australia performs at the Sydney Opera House January-April and July-November every year. Opera Australia also performs at Arts Centre Melbourne and on the Sydney Harbour stage. Most performances start at 7.30pm and run 2–3 hours with an interval. There is no dress code. English translations are projected above the stage for all operas sung in foreign languages. Selected operas in the season will also have Simplified Chinese translations (Carmen, La Traviata, Opera on Sydney Harbour and Aida).

As a Canberra resident I subscribe to 9 Saturday nights a year. Opera Australia provides enjoyable performances (some better than others but that is part of the experience) and I think it is important to support our cultural institutions.

Never been to an opera and probably never will, so a visit to the iconic Sydney opera house may seem out of place.
Plenty of facts on the building and Sydney history
Not to be missed

Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour: what a great night out! (and memorable birthday gift.) Good eats on one of the the terraces before the show (from menu with Japanese-themed titles), sipping sparkling with magnificent views from Mrs Macquarie's Point, beautiful sets & costumes, fantastic performances especially from soprano Hiroma Omuri - an audio & visual treat. Only negative was the drizzle which became rain; it drenched the performers and led to an extra break (while we huddled in our ponchos) but 'the show must go on' and thankfully it did including the fireworks & all. Wow!

This was the highlight. We walked the entire pathway and enjoyed every bit of it. We went there thrice and at different times of the day and night. It was wonderful everytime. Nice picturesque atmosphere and above all awesome structure!
