We saw Turandot at the Opera house and it was flawless. We were encapsulated by the performance and everyone involved put it together wonderfully. I would love to see them perform again somewhere.

This was a magical production of a fine opera. My wife and I are not generally opera-goers, but visiting Sydney, we thought we’d like the experience. Straight from the start of the performance it was clear that this special. The beautiful whilst contemporary stage set...More

A very good performance in an iconic building. Very impressive on the outside. The Joan Sutherland Theatre where Turandot was performed is very plain with a very high vaulted concrete ceiling all painted black. Also seemed a fairly small theatre

After a lovely dinner at Sir Stanford we wandered over to the Opera House and saw Turandot. Whilst I am no opera expert I enjoyed the performance and will definitely be back for more.

A spectacular evening. The Opera ( La Boheme) was magnificent in every aspect. The quality of the singing, the costumes, the sets and the orchestra was top notch. The building is amazing and the sound perfect. The staff is completely attuned with dealing with patrons...More

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
