The critically acclaimed and wildly popular Madama Butterfly returns to the Handa on Sydney Harbour stage.

Take your seats overlooking ‘Paradise’ – complete with a bamboo grove, a giant moon, and a rising sun floating in the harbour. The picture-perfect backdrop of the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge twinkles with thousands of city lights as night falls.

For innocent Cio-Cio-San, love flutters on wings of desire. For brash Pinkerton, a flight of fancy is irresistible. On their wedding night, passions ignite. Yet, how ephemeral is their ecstatic embrace?

Puccini’s intimate ode to unrequited love has always been shocking. East meets West, devotion meets disregard, expectation meets disappointment. In the clash, Cio-Cio-San’s dreams shatter.

It was a great show and nice seats! The venue was outside, a bit rainy but also was very nice. I thought the venue was hard to get to.
Unbelievable experience...

Unbelievable experience seeing The Phantom of the Opera at the outdoor stage! Totally iconic. We will remember this for the rest of our lives... And we will be back! Get there around 5 to get a good table at the outdoor Opera Restaurant, and leave time to take a water taxi to the outdoor stage!
Brilliant performance and amazing ambience.

We flew down to Sydney just to attend Phantom of the Opera on the Harbour Stage. OMG what can I stay. It was so worth every cent. The performance was brilliant, the sound fantastic, especially given it is outside. The ambience of the setting was just amazing. Brilliant just brilliant.
Amazing Experience

Amazing experience. Hard to put into words. To watch an outdoor opera on the harbour with Sydney lit up in lights as a backdrop was unbelievable. Performance was outstanding
A life memory.
