Overnight: The Four Seasons Hotel Sydney
Start the morning with an exclusive tour of the Anzac Memorial in Hyde Park and learn about the symbolism and meaning found
in this historic sculptural monument. Next, we enjoy a back-of-house tour of Opera Australia’s impressive production workshops at the Opera Centre. This evening we transfer to Mrs Macquaries Point for a night of mystery and romance. From premium reserve seating, immerse yourself in the atmosphere as the sun sets over Sydney’s spectacular skyline. Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour’s dazzling new
production showcases The Phantom of the Opera as you have never seen it before – under the stars, on a floating stage, city lights glittering in the background. Be awed by a new level of spectacle brought to the show’s defining moments – the mirror, the journey to the Phantom’s lair and the famed chandelier brought to life by opera’s top talents accompanied by a live orchestra hidden beneath the stage. The Phantom haunts the catacombs beneath the Paris Opera House. He’s man and mystery, a deformed genius. In Christine Daae, he’s found his angel of
music – the young woman he would make a star. Be mesmerised as their tale draws you in to the magic and music of the night!
