Beyond our dreams
Collette_M, Mar 2024
Beyond memorable. Plenty of places to eat before and after the performance. Fantastic views of the harbour and seriously, you can't come to Sydney without going to a performance at the Opera or Concert halls.
Good for both

Very good experience on Sydney Opera House and the performance inside by Australia Opera on 11 March.
Sydney Opera House - A Venue & Experience Not to Miss
Cheryl_W, Mar 2024
Our Australian/New Zealand cruise started & ended in Sydney. We knew we couldn’t leave without seeing & experiencing an opera. La Traviata was playing. The cast was amazing, supported by the Opera Australia Orchestra & Chorus & performed in the majestic Sydney opera house. We were not disappointed!!!
Captivating perdornance

The vocals music and emotions evoked captivated my heart and attention. Beautiful performance overall!
Timeless love affair
Amor_L, Mar 2024
The theme about enduring love is timeless but Violeta’s illness should be changed from tuberculosis to something else. Why? TB is contagious and if she did have active infectious process, it could have been very unfortunate for the others around her to be infected. Cancer of the cervix should have been more appropriate since she is a courtesan and that their promiscuous lifestyle during that era cannot be ignored.

We thought the music was beautiful and the opera was fun to watch. The Sydney Opera House is even more gorgeous at night than in the daytime. It took a bit to find the restrooms.
