About La Traviata on Sydney Harbour

Violetta is the life of every party. A courtesan with a heart of gold, she’s free and free-spirited. Could a little love change everything?

Experience the joy and heartache of the world’s most popular opera at Sydney’s best night out. Fireworks light up the sky at every performance. A giant chandelier shimmers over the harbour stage.

In 2020, Opera Australia presents La Traviata: the story that inspired Moulin Rouge. The 3.5-tonne chandelier sparkles with 10,000 Swarovski crystals. The biggest scenes feature 70 performers on stage and party boats in the harbour.

Verdi’s score offers flying melodies, rousing drinking songs and heartbreaking duets. Brian Castles-Onion conducts the opera, with a live orchestra hidden under the stage.

Performed in Italian with English and Simplified Chinese surtitles.
