New Year’s Eve

Kick off 2025 in operatic style with one of two spectacular performances at the Sydney Opera House.

No other city celebrates New Year’s Eve like Sydney and there’s no better place to join in the celebrations than at the Sydney Opera House with Opera Australia.

Choose between The Opera Gala in the Concert Hall, featuring opera's most beautiful music, or a staged opera performance, in the splendour of the Joan Sutherland Theatre.

New Year's Eve Opera Gala

New Year's Eve Opera Gala

Concert Hall, Sydney Opera House

A wild operatic celebration with a distinctively Australian flavour. Sydney’s world-famous New Year’s Eve fireworks are the cherry on top.

A must-see if you love big voices, big laughs and fireworks – both dramatic and literal.
