Thrill to the sound of a mass of voices, singing as one.
Prepare to have your hair blown back by the sheer magnitude of these exquisite voices.

The Opera Australia Chorus has long been the backbone of our productions. Now, hear the lyrical beauty and power of this chorale centre stage in the Joan Sutherland Theatre.

Chorus! showcases famous choral pieces by the legends of opera, including Verdi, Puccini, Wagner and Tchaikovsky. Director Matthew Barclay and esteemed Chorus Master Paul Fitzsimon thread a compelling narrative through the masterworks of all eras.

The voices of 48 choristers come together to explore vast musical terrain through the emotional language of song.

From Rigoletto’s urgent ‘Zitti, zitti, moviamo a vendetta’ to the sacred incantations of ‘Beglückt darf nun’ (Pilgrim’s Chorus) in Tannhäuser, Pagliacci’s lively Bell Chorus and Madama Butterfly’s exquisitely poignant Humming Chorus, Chorus! is a unique operatic experience that will make your heart sing.

A Thrilling Evening

Loved our experience attending the opera in this lovely setting. The production was beautiful, lively and imaginative; the performances were just wonderful; the whole evening was really a dream come true!
It couldn't have been better !

When Holland America cancelled the Opera House tour, I made friends with Opera Australia. The minute single tickets to Carmen became available I jumped. Four tickets, fifth row dead center. The performance couldn't have been better. The voices were superb ! Acting flawless even down to the children. They sang and acted wonderfully. What a beautiful place, what a wonderful performance, how could it be better. Thank you Opera Australia, long may you wave.
Fantastic Performance

This was an amazing performance of a classic. All of the lead characters were great. The modernization of the setting took some spectators by surprise but was well done. You can’t miss seeing an opera if in Sydney.
Carmen at the Opera House

We had a wonderful evening at the Opera House and the whole setting was magical. Sadly the opera did not live up to its surroundings. The staging was not very imaginative and Carmen herself was not the sultry temptress you would expect. Despite this we did have a wonderful night and would thoroughly recommend it.
Where’s wardrobe and makeup?

Beautiful stunning venue. Volume of orchestra was too low - show off that talent. During the first half, the performers were also quiet. Now I get that it’s hard to find a complete package to play Carmen but what about hair extensions, sultry makeup and stunner dresses for Carmen. There were several times the background players upstaged her visually. Help her out - wardrobe and makeup. Don Jose stole the show.

Also I ordered and paid for an intermission beverage. What chaos! People were just grabbing glasses of wine. I guzzled a full cider in 5 minutes. Yikes. Never recommend that to anyone.

We also found substantially cheaper tickets online than those offered at the box office. Staff were not very helpful.

But certainly you must experience an opera or another favourite production at the Sydney Opera House.
