This month, the opera extends beyond the iconic Sydney Opera House as Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour presents its newest spectacular production, Turandot, where “a powerful lust meets an icy heart.” When the Princess of Peking demands her suitors answer three riddles in order to win her hand, she offers death to those who are unsuccessful, but a daring prince from a foreign land conquers her riddles and offers her one of his own, which threatens the life of more than one suitor.
An irresistible love story, Turandot features an evening of captivating entertainment in the pop-up, open-air opera house with mesmerizing sunsets, sweeping melodies, and a 196-foot dragon. Relax in the purpose-built bars and restaurants before and after the performance, and marvel at the grandeur that is Opera Australia.
