The Premier had a vision for an opera house. The architect had a dream of a building unlike any other. The young soprano had a great talent and a big choice ahead of her. This is a story of a building — but few buildings in the world catch so many personalities, so many agendas and so many dreams in its sails.

Joan Sutherland Theatre, Sydney Opera House, 31 December
Leave the crowds behind as you enter the Sydney Opera House, then settle back for an evening with Rodolfo, Mimi, Marcello and Musetta in Puccini's La bohème.
The way that first love grabs hold of your insides and floods you with something you've never felt before. The fire that burns you the first time jealousy flares. The growing up you do in the instant you realise love can't last forever. Puccini takes these achingly human feelings and sets them to music — music that soars with the ecstacy of love, crackles with the pain of jealousy and cries with the agony of loss. Gale Edwards' glittering production, set in the bohemian streets of 1930s Berlin, offers a perfect showcase for Mariangela Sicilia in the role of Mimì.
