About La Traviata on Sydney Harbour

Raise your glass, flutter those lashes. He’s staring at you, he’s singing for you… Are you tempted? 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?

Opera Australia presents La Traviata: the story that inspired Moulin Rouge.

Take a harbourside setting with an unrivalled view of the famous Sydney skyline. Build a pop-up opera house, complete with bars, restaurants and tiered seating. Add a 3.5-tonne chandelier sparkling with 10,000 crystals, 80 performers on stage, party boats in the harbour, spectacular dance and an explosion of fireworks, and you’ve got a night like no other.

Your evening starts with drinks or dinner at one of the five pop-up bars and restaurants on site. Drink in the view as the setting sun glimmers over the city skyline. Then take your seats in the comfortable grandstand to enjoy “a ravishing visual spectacle” (Huffington Post).

Verdi’s music offers flying melodies, rousing drinking songs and heartbreaking duets in the opera that you’ll recognise from Pretty Woman and that inspired Moulin Rouge.
