Announced recently, Opera Australia is continuing its hugely successful Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour series with the announcement today of a new three-year agreement with Destination NSW, commencing in 2018 with Puccini’s much-loved La Bohème.

Directed by Andy Morton – and conducted by Brian Castles-Onion – the production of the piece, which has gone down as the inspiration for such other hits as Rent and the saucy Moulin Rouge, will take the reins for the first time of a new harbour show. Meanwhile, legendary conductor Brian Castles-Onion will again take up his position under the stage, leading the Opera Australia Orchestra. Opera Australia also welcomes the return of celebrated set and costume designer Dan Potra who worked his magic on Opera Australia’s 2016 outdoor productions, Turandot on Sydney Harbour and Sydney Opera House – The Opera.

“It’s no wonder the event has become such a hit with locals and tourists alike. With its harbour-side setting, spectacular views of the famous Sydney skyline, the Opera House and Harbour Bridge, along with a monumental set, stunning costumes, world-class performers and a nightly burst of fireworks, it’s an unforgettable experience,” said Lyndon Terracini, the artistic director of Opera Australia.
