All visitors should beware when booking tickets through the Opera Australia booking site. I was supplied with incorrect information and given a credit which was extremely limited. The cancellation I made was due to their lack of information when I booked my original tickets 14...More

This is a fun opera, and very accessible to new patrons to opera. The story is very easy to follow, colourful and lots of laughs.

Unbelievable performance of Aida - spectacular and spellbinding! A real wow factor. Well worth a visit as the building alone is stunning. Shop is very reasonable too with some great buys as mementos - love the Xmas ornament!!

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

Hi 2sdy, It can be fun to get dressed up for the opera, but it's by no means compulsory! You'll see people dressed differently at the opera so please wear whatever you'll feel comfortable in. Kind regards, Lara Customer... More
