Winter Weekend of Italian Opera
Be seduced by the grand tradition of Italian opera at the Sydney Opera House, with sumptuous productions of Verdi’s La Traviata and Il Trovatore and Puccini’s Madama Butterfly.
Enjoy among the best seats in the house for all performances, as Carlo Montanaro conducts South Korean soprano Sae Kyung Rim and Pavarotti’s protégé Ivan Magri in Graeme Murphy’s arresting production of Puccini’s Madama Butterfly.
Delight in the passion and freedom of bohemian Paris at La Traviata, with home-grown soprano Stacey Alleaume as Violetta. Revel in the stunning arias and rousing choruses of Verdi’s Il Trovatore, with conductor Andrea Battistoni, American soprano Leah Crocetto and leading tenor Yonghoon Lee.
Round off your experience with an exploration of Sydney’s rich Italian heritage, from the art of its Old Masters to fine dining, and deepen your understanding of the productions with pre-performance talks by broadcaster Mairi Nicolson.
