Vivaldi

Pinchgut Opera has assembled some of the world's finest voices to bring these characters to life and showcase Vivaldi's thrilling tunes.

Puccini

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, Mimì, 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.

Bizet

Joan Sutherland Theatre, Sydney Opera House, 11 January—26 March

In the colourful streets of a colonial city, Carmen is a red hot spark. She sings her siren song, and suddenly, Don José's world is alight with a volatile fire. 

John Bell's production is a bold look at the intense relationships at the heart of Bizet's famous opera. It hones in on the wild love that promises freedom, while binding the lovers in an unbreakable web of fate.

Sir David McVicar’s production reveals the darkness in opera’s most compelling anti-hero. His Don Giovanni is a psychological thriller on a grand scale.

Gounod

Joan Sutherland Theatre, Sydney Opera House, 10 February—11 March

Faust intends to win his heart’s desires, even if it costs him his soul. The charming Méphistophélès offers him a salacious journey through life’s pleasures. Faust bargains away eternity and dives right in. But as the lives around him start to unravel, the devil, it seems, is in the detail.

Faust is grand opera at its very best, with a hefty dose of theatricality from renowned director, Sir David McVicar.

Donizetti

Joan Sutherland Theatre, Sydney Opera House, 30 June—16 July

Elizabeth has been the Virgin Queen too long. She relishes the attention of a younger courtier: the ambitious Roberto Devereux. But Devereux stands accused of treason. Elizabeth has to choose between her country and her heart.

This tale of love, lust and betrayal in the Tudor royal court strays a long way from history, but makes a sensational plot. Add Donizetti’s luxurious music, a brilliant cast and an extraordinary new production, and it becomes a must-see.

When it premiered on Broadway in 1991, The Secret Garden took New York by storm. Tony Awards, national tours and international productions all followed. Now, for the first time in 25 years, this sensational musical returns to Australia in all its glory.

The famous novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett on which the musical is based is known and loved by many. This heart-warming story comes to life on stage with the same magical qualities, and rewards audiences with its sophisticated take on this literary classic.

Margaret and her daughter Clara are taking in the wonders of Florence during a languid 1950s summer. A windborne hat sparks an intense romance between Clara and local dreamer Fabrizio.

Across the Channel, written just one year later, Purcell’s Come, Ye Sons of Art celebrates the birthday of Queen Mary with music of sheer delight

Ford & Smith

Opera Australia Scenery Workshop, The Opera Centre, Dawson St, Surry Hills, 16—19 September

Rembrandt was famous for his portraits: rosy cheeks, smiling women, luscious naked curves. He lived with his wife, Saskia, in love and luxury. But as an old man, Rembrandt did not paint laughing women. He died alone, destitute. 

Discover this extraordinary story in the first revival of this 2009 chamber opera by Andrew Ford and Sue Smith.

Donizetti

Sydney Town Hall, 8—10 October

It’s got poison and betrayals galore. But the best reason to see Lucrezia Borgia in concert is to bask in the skills of an extraordinary soprano. Impossible trills and stratospheric notes make this classic Donizetti an important conquest for the best coloratura sopranos.

This is your chance to hear Jessica Pratt perform the title role of Lucrezia Borgia (including the infamous final aria) in concert.

Pinchgut Opera presents

City Recital Hall, Angel Place, 3—9 December

In this magical tale of chivalry and cunning, the knight Rinaldo battles the scheming sorceress Armida to rescue his beloved Almirena. This was the first Italian opera ever written for the London stage, and it catapulted the young Handel to fame and fortune with its brilliant display of arias, duets and orchestral effects, by turns ravishing and thrilling.
