About Italian Opera Gala

Italy is more than just the home of opera – Italy is opera and opera is Italy. In the 19th-century its greatest composers like Rossini, Donizetti and Verdi were at the height of their powers, composing music that had audiences singing in the streets.

For these performances we've selected stars of the European Opera circuit, all noted for their performances at the Deutsche Oper Berlin, and brought them together for this concert of opera highlights.

Be moved by the human voice expressing the deepest of human emotions in this passionate performance of the greatest music from Italian Opera.

The Sydney Symphony Orchestra has brought together four stars of European Opera – Siobhan Stagg, Vasilisa Berzhanskaya, Samuel Sakker and Derek Welton – to perform some of the great moments of Italian Opera, by Verdi, Puccini, Rossini and more.
