Sunset Boulevard

Presented by Opera Australia

Wed, 28th August to Sat, 2nd November '24 in 6 months. Sydney Opera House, Sydney. Tickets $49 to $279

Musical theatre and international recording superstar Sarah Brightman leads a lavish new production of Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical masterpiece.
Starring Sarah Brightman as Norma Desmond

This thrillingly atmospheric reimagination of Sunset Boulevard features stunning sets and costumes along with the iconic score including the hits 'With One Look', ‘The Perfect Year', and the anthemic ‘As If We Never Said Goodbye'.

Sunset Boulevard is a musical with music by Andrew Lloyd Webber, and lyrics and a book by Don Black and Christopher Hampton.
It is based on the 1950 film of the same title.

The plot revolves around Norma Desmond, a faded star of the silent screen era, living in the past in her decaying mansion on the fabled Los Angeles street.
When young screenwriter Joe Gillis accidentally crosses her path, she sees in him an opportunity to make her return to the big screen, with romance and tragedy to follow.

Opening first in London in 1993, the musical has had several long runs internationally and enjoyed extensive tours.
However, it has been the subject of several legal battles and ultimately lost money due to its extraordinary running costs.
