Join us for a night of fine food, fine wine and world-class opera in the Hunter Valley.

We've partnered with chef Justin North, Tyrrell’s Wines and Oaks Cypress Lakes Resort Hunter Valley to bring you Opera by the Lake: a bespoke dining experience, bringing together opera, food and wine. Lakeside in picturesque Pokolbin — a short two-hour drive north of Sydney — indulge your ears, eyes and tastebuds.

Be treated to culinary delights as Justin North creates four fabulous courses under a marquee by the lake. Named GQ Chef of the Year in 2010, Justin continues to bring his own spin on home-grown, comfort food classics to dining.

This evening will showcase our leading artists, Lorina Gore and Simon Kim. Interwoven through the four-course wine dinner, we'll perform well-known arias such as Musetta's Waltz from La Bohème and Turandot’s spine-tingling 'Nessun dorma'. 

Be part of this exquisite event by joining a table or booking your own table for six or more people for just $250 per person (plus a booking fee of $8.50).
