Experience the joy and heartache of the world’s most popular opera at Sydney’s best night out, La Traviata on Sydney Harbour, proudly supported by smooth 95.3

A giant chandelier shimmers over the harbour stage. Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour is “the ultimate Sydney experience” (Yahoo! Travel). From March 27 to April 26, La Traviata: the story that inspired Moulin Rouge is set to dazzle on the floating harbour stage.

Arrive early to enjoy 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).

The 3.5-tonne chandelier sparkles with 10,000 crystals. The biggest scenes feature 80 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.
