Experiences make the best gifts, and when a spectacular experience combines with time spent with you? You’ve nailed it.
Book a date with your mum at the opera for the ultimate mother’s day gift.
Here's the perfect gift for...
Your glitz and glam mum
Whether it’s diamonds or just rhinestones, she loves a bit of sparkle. But even the glitziest mum will find it hard to out-shine the spectacle of Aida at the Sydney Opera House. This extraordinary, epic production brings together the fashion of today and inspirations from Ancient Egypt.
Your mum who really knows her opera
If she’s spent her life in opera houses and has already seen all the popular classics, she won’t be able to resist La Gioconda with Jonas Kaufmann. Not only is it a rarely-performed masterpiece with lush, sweeping melodies, but it stars the world’s greatest tenor, Jonas Kaufmann. Every opera lover needs to hear his glorious voice in person at least once.
Your left-of-centre mum
She’s always had her own style and walked to the beat of her own drum. She’s not one to follow a recipe, and she’s always seeking out new experiences and ideas. Treat her to The Tales of Hoffmann, a weird and wonderful opera made up of several quirky short stories, which comes to life with whimsical sets and costumes.
Your mum who can’t resist a tear-jerker
She’s always first to mist up when you’re watching a weepie together, so tote the tissues and take her to see Rigoletto. Verdi’s tragic opera about a duke, his court jester and the jester’s daughter is packed with passion, features an incredible revolving set, and has one of opera’s best tragic endings.
Your musical-loving mum
She sings along to cast recordings in the car. She’s seen all the blockbusters at least once. And she’s a sucker for a big dance number. Miss Saigon will be right up her alley — a story of romance and tragedy by the composers of Les Misérables. Add epic sets, beautiful costumes and a very famous chopper, and you have a perfect night out.
Your mum who knows what she wants
