Full description

The ultimate femme fatale is back, in a brand new island performance of Carmen in the middle of Sydney Harbour. Your Opera tickets will grant you access to Carmen as she tosses her hair, stamps her feet and the whole world falls under her spell. You’ll hear the flirty Habanera and famous Toreador song amid a spectacle that features fire-twirling, car crashes and fireworks. Your night begins with a ferry ride across the glittering water to the world-heritage listed sanctuary of Cockatoo Island. Step off the boat and you’re surrounded by layers of history. Once a meeting place for Indigenous Australians, the site is now dotted with the industrial relics of a century of ship-building and architectural marvels dating back to Sydney’s convict past. Today, the island is a world-class contemporary arts venue, hosting everything from the Biennale of Sydney to live concert performances. It’s the perfect backdrop for Bizet’s gritty tale of fate and freedom. Raise a glass with friends and grab a snack from an array of pop up bars and eateries on the foreshore before settling in under the stars for an unforgettable night out. You can even sail right up to the event and book a mooring to watch the show.
