Beautiful opera, but access difficult
, May 2021
We enjoyed the experience with the opera outside on such a beautiful night. Unfortunately, walking to and from the venue, up the stairs and down to get food, toilet, etc was quite difficult for my husband. And then getting a taxi at the end of the evening, we were forced to stand and wait for a very long time. There were no provisions that we could see for people with a mobility disability. That was disappointing.
A Brilliant Night Out

La Magnifica

Had great seats in Section F directly across from the stage. The singing and the orchestra were magnificent thoroughly enjoyed it. You might need a blanket as we went last Saturday night and it was a little chilly however we could buy a hot coffee at the venue! Also you cannot walk around from Opera House to Mrs Macquarie's Chair via the foreshore at night as the gates are closed. Instead you can catch a water taxi from Opera House to Venue.

Had to change the date, which was easy and convenient. Message should be conveyed to pick up tickets at Box Office on arrival.

No play .....
, Apr 2021
It was rained off. The decision was a correct decision; but, it could and should have been made earlier.
, Apr 2021
This Harbourside opera spared no expense in it's exquisite show performances, stunning costume design and fabulous vocal demonstrations. The incorporation of the Sydney Harbour surprises were an added bonus and a delightful treat. The translations ensured you were able to follow along with this epic Parisian tragedy. Would definitely recommend!
Excellent quality live event
