Great Opera Hits - Opera at the Sydney Opera House

Show tickets on your phone
1 hr 30 mins

Head to the Sydney Opera House for an evening of iconic opera hits ranging from Rossini’s The Barber of Seville to Puccini’s Nessun Dorma. Led by experienced director Johanna Puglisi alongside pianist and conductor Anthony Hunt, Great Opera Hits is set to be one of the top shows this season!

Why Watch Great Opera Hits

The show features some of the most recognizable stars in the Australian Opera scene. Anna-Louise Cole, lauded by Opera Magazine UK as ‘an exceptional young soprano’ in 2017, brings her powerful and sophisticated vocals to the Sydney Opera House stage. Ever since her debut performance as Aida for Griffith Opera on the Beach, she has won several accolades including the Green Room Award and the Young Australians Vienna State Opera Award. She is joined by Natalie Aroyan, a more experienced and equally talented soprano who holds a Postgraduate Diploma of Opera from the Sydney Conservatorium of Music. Great Opera Hits stays true to its name and does not disappoint as it takes you through the comical staccato of the Barber of Seville and the tragic drones of Delibes’ Flower Duet from Lakme. The entire performance is expertly directed by the well-known Johanna Puglisi.

The Story

Great Opera Hits includes famous pieces by Rossini, Bizet, Puccini, and Delibes. The beautiful flowing vocals that express Musetta’s desire to reclaim the love of Marcello in Quando m'en vo' (Musetta’s Waltz from La Boheme) is perfectly captured by the orchestra. The comradery and loyalty of Nadir and Zurga are brought out expertly by the subtle interplay of tenor and baritone in Au fond du temple saint from George Bizet’s 1863 Les pêcheurs de Perles. The mellow and soulful Nessun Dorma from Turandot and the exciting crescendos of The Barber of Seville are also part of the show’s incredible list of memorable pieces.
