We had a family trip to Sydney in January. Opera House is certainly a top attraction in town. Among many ways to take a tour of it, we bought tickets for opera "La Boheme" by Opera Australia, thinking that a normal person would go to...More

It was atrocious. Wooden performances from many of the cast, not helped I'm sorry to say by a very portly Rodolfo, in spite of his very acceptable voice. And oh dear, what a laboured, facile storyline La Boheme depicts which could never compete in this...More

Went to see La Boheme. Amazing. Do go see it. Only comment I would make is to place subtitile readers or have an app where you can access them. Turning to the side if you are at the front does become painful and you miss...More

The best on Sydney together with the Harbour Bridge. La Boheme is very good and also the tour, which is a little expensive, but worth it.

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens

Hi EmmaAxel, Thanks for your question. All of our operas have English surtitles. They're shown on a board above the stage as the singers perform so you'll be able to follow the story in real time. Kind regards... More
