Need help picking? Here’s the perfect gift for...
Your friends, who are always up for making a little magic
Rogers and Hammerstein’s modern twist on the classic fairytale Cinderella has ballgowns and bling aplenty. A dreamy package of romance, hilarity and wonder, this Tony Award-winning musical is a delightful surprise. Lucky for them, the magic won’t fade at midnight – this is what memories are made of.
Your siblings, because they’re always keen for an epic adventure
This is opera as it should be: bigger than Ben Hur. From the towering digital set panels that immerse the audience in vivid landscapes to the luxe costumes and dramatic choreography, this Aida is larger than life. Verdi’s monumental music scores an epic tale of love and war.
Your partner, because starlight, fireworks and opera = romance
Start your evening at Madama Butterfly on Sydney Harbour with a glass of bubbles by the water’s edge. Watch the sun set over the harbour and enjoy an intimate meal at one of the on-site eateries. Then settle back for one of opera’s most moving tragedies. Did we mention fireworks?
Your parents, so they can remember how young love feels
It’s the original Bohemian love story, with all the emotion you can imagine packed into two hours of soaring music. This beloved production glitters with fairy lights and 1930s style glamour, but it’s the music that will stay with them long after the curtain falls.
Your clients, who want something short, sophisticated and stunning
A night at the opera is all class, and here are some of opera’s most powerful moments, packed into a short concert. There’s nothing like the force of a Chorus in full flight. Even the most cynical will find it hard to resist the intensity of these popular works.
Your bestie who’d help you get away with murder
You turn a blind eye when they’re up to no good, so they’re the perfect date for this opera classic. Rigoletto has glamour, grit, lust and revenge – and opera’s biggest hit tune. This La Dolce Vita-inspired production has an ingenious dolls-house revolving set and a scene-stealing Fiat 500.
Your Aunt who loves a mega musical
Take her to The Phantom of the Opera in Melbourne for a brand-new staging of the most mega of all musicals. There’s a massive cast, orchestra, dazzling costumes, and a pretty famous chandelier. She’ll swoon to all the songs she knows (fighting the desire to sing along) and gasp at the moments of spectacle.
Yourself, because you deserve a fun night out
What do you get when cabaret meets opera in the middle of WorldPride? Something like WorldPride: Opera Up Late, an irreverent late-night performance featuring queer talent, drag queens, opera classics and a few pop numbers. Go on, treat yourself.
