Sydney Festival

Sydney Festival

Sydney Festival is a celebration of art, performance and big ideas; transforming Sydney every January

Embracing the art of summer since 1977, Sydney Festival is a city-wide celebration of culture, creativity and the questioning mind. From the streets to the beach, in stately theatres and in secret basements, it animates locations across Greater Sydney with a trailblazing free and ticketed program of theatre, music, dance, visual art and all the experimental in-between places of live performance.

Sydney Festival - Il Tabarro

Il Tabarro

Presented by Victorian Opera

Tue, 9th to 13th January in 5 weeks. Australian National Maritime Museum, Pyrmont.

Puccini's one-act opera masterpiece on the harbour
Free Entry

A nautical noir opera under the stars and on the harbour. Puccini's one-act masterpiece (the first opera in II Trittico) is a darkly romantic tale of passion, desperation and heartbreak.

Il Tabarro will be staged aboard The Carpentaria, a historic lightship built in 1917 – the same year Puccini finished work on the composition.
Innovative director Constantine Costi and his team are taking this brooding opera to an updated setting inspired by 1930s Depression-era Sydney. Conductor Simon Bruckard leads a cast of exceptional Australian talent and a live orchestra for an unmissable night.

This event is free and ticketed.
