Opera Makes the Perfect Date
Imagine surprising someone you love (or someone you’re hoping will fall in love with you) with tickets to the opera.
You’ve planned something special. You dress to impress. You meet your date and walk along the water to the beautiful Sydney Opera House or Arts Centre Melbourne.
As the lights go down in the theatre, get swept up in a torrid romance or heart wrenching tragedy. Bask in the beauty and artistry on stage.
At interval, grab a glass of something sparkling and enjoy the stunning view over Sydney Harbour or the lush interior of Arts Centre Melbourne.
It’s a date that you’ll always remember.
Bachelor Sam Wood took Sarah to Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour in 2015. If you want to plan a date that special, buy tickets to next year’s Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour and add a pre-performance gourmet meal in the Platinum Club. The purpose-built restaurant only exists during the Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour season, so that incredible view is only available for four weeks each year. Travel packages are available.
You can splash out and buy premium seats with a lavish dinner beforehand, but you don’t have to!
Around half of our tickets cost less than $150, and there are options under $100 too.
A date to the opera doesn't require any extra preparation or knowledge, but we've prepared a handy guide to help you get ready.
