Sunset on Sydney Harbour and the dining terrace of the custom-built Opera on Sydney Harbour site.

Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour

Take a harbourside setting with an unrivalled view of the famous Sydney skyline. Build a pop-up opera house, complete with bars, restaurants and tiered seating. Add a monumental set, colourful, eye-catching costumes, spectacular dance and an explosion of fireworks, and you’ve got a night like no other.

This is Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour: the cultural event of the year. At sunset, gather with friends over a glass of something sparkling and a sumptuous meal before settling back to enjoy show-stopping performances.

Details of Handa Opera in Sydney Harbour in 2021 will be revealed in late 2020.
