Nights at the Sydney Opera House
Enjoy among the best seats at the Sydney Opera House for two major opera productions, including Verdi’s La Traviata and Mozart’s Idomeneo, as well as Schoenberg’s oratorio, Gurrelieder.
For Mozart’s Idomeneo, renowned conductor Johannes Fritzsch leads a brilliant cast, including German-Canadian tenor Michael Schade, who takes on the titular role. Revel in a glittering production of Verdi’s La Traviata, starring New Zealand baritone Phillip Rhodes, making his Opera Australia debut as Giorgio Germont.
Then, coinciding with Arnold Schoenberg’s 150th birthday anniversary, experience a once in a lifetime performance of his oratorio Gurrelieder by the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Simone Young. In addition to the SSO, this monumental production features musicians from the Australian National Academy of Music and a massed choir of more than 200.
