Thu, 15th September, 2016 @ 19:00pm - 21:15pm£8 – £12
After last year’s hugely successful Aida on Sydney Harbour, Handa Opera return with their most exciting opera yet: Turandot.
When the heroic high notes of ‘Nessun Dorma’ ring out, your soul stirs. It’s impossible to resist – the climax of an exotic adventure, captured perfectly in music.
Set against the magnificent backdrop of the Sydney Opera House, Puccini’s Turandot recounts the Chinese fable of the beautiful and powerful Princess Turandot, who challenges her many suitors to answer three riddles on pain of death. No one has ever succeeded. Until a young brave Prince named Calaf declares his love for the princess and answers correctly…
Don’t miss this incredible annual opera event with lavish sets, extraordinary costumes and a spectacular firework display from Sydney’s beautiful harbour.
