Description

Experience New Year's Eve in the city that throws one of the hottest and biggest NYE celebrations in the world. And no trip to Sydney is complete without seeing its most iconic attraction. Step inside the Sydney Opera House and catch an opera then, during interval, witness the famous fireworks over Sydney Harbour. New Year's Eve is the night when Sydney puts on the bling, kicks up its heels and shows the world what a gorgeous thing it is, as a festival of fire explodes across the midnight sky!

La Bohème (Puccini)

Settle back for an evening with Rodolfo, Mimi, Marcello and Musetta in Puccini's La Bohème.

A painter, a musician, a philosopher and a poet are having a night on the town. Café Momus is too pricey for them - they've nothing to weigh down those moth-eaten pockets. But why worry? The landlord is sorted, the bar tab can wait. They're young and their lofty ideals will keep body and soul together.

And then there's love. Ah, love. That tingle of electricity as two hands meet. The fire in the eyes of the girl you want so badly. Love will keep us warm, won't it? Nearly 120 years after Puccini wrote his smash-hit La Bohème, this story of first love still tops the list of most performed operas around the world.

Perhaps the tale of four friends living for their art reminds us of a person we weren't brave enough to become. Perhaps Puccini's talent for capturing emotion in music takes us back to the first time we felt love stir in our hearts. Perhaps it's just that La Bohème is a story we understand. It's about friendship and falling in love. It's about sacrifice and never giving up, even if it means parting with your lover - or your favorite coat.

Gale Edwards' glittering production provides a perfect setting for these utterly human emotions: in the bohemian streets of 1930s Berlin, in the color and chaos of street fairs and burlesque bars, fairylights and fishnet stockings.
