Make this your most glamorous New Year ever

Enjoy a few drinks overlooking the magnificent Sydney Harbour before you take your seats for our new New Year’s Eve gala.

The Opera Gala is a wild journey through the world of opera with a distinctively Australian flavour. Expect plenty of laughs and surprises as we bring a new lens to beloved opera classics.

Watch the 9pm fireworks sparkle during the interval, and after the show, make your evening even more special with tickets to our exclusive Midnight Party. Held in the Northern Foyers of the Opera House, this event includes drinks, canapés and entertainment — and of course, a great vantage point for Sydney’s famous NYE fireworks.

So go on, make this your most glamorous New Year ever.
