A night at the Opera


 


A must do, for anyone in Sydney late March to early April is a night at Handa's Opera on Sydney Harbour. For locals, watch the weather and scout cheap tickets, Hot tips, I usually buy the D-list $99 tickets but get them closest to the stage (not necessarily up the front, but closest to the aisle & the centre block, but in the cheaper block, if that makes sense).  










La Traviata was beautiful visually (as well as musically) but the real scene stealer is of course the back drop of the Harbour Bridge and Opera House all lit up. When the fireworks go off, I really feel I'm so lucky to live in this spectacular city.








Use it or lose it, as they say.

Nothing says farewell to summer for me, as a balmy evening outside harborside, watching the Opera.

  7. Wonderful shots of what must have been a treat, Lydia. Whenever I visited Sydney and the opera was on at the Opera House, I bought el cheapo tickets about 10 minutes before curtain up and admittedly sometimes they were up with the gods, but occasionally I got prime seats in the circle at ridiculously low prices. In any case the experiences were marvellous.
    Thanks for taking part in the "My Sunday Best" meme.
