Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour (Warrane) is one of the world’s most unique theatre experiences
From outback to opera, pair two iconic experiences in one journey. Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour is an annual event that’s not to be missed. It’s music and lights, fireworks, and fanfare along Sydney’s Domain.
In 2024, Opera Australia will perform the beloved West Side Story musical. The original 1957 Broadway production has been revived and is coming to you now in 2024 on one of Australia’s most spectacular stages with unrivalled views, Sydney Harbour.

Tonight may very well be the highlight of your stay in Sydney.
