Friday, 7 April 2017 – Monday, 10 April 2017
We are delighted to be able to announce the details of our ‘Sydney Gala Weekend 2017’ which will include an exhilarating array of memorable experiences.
We will be staying at the luxurious Four Seasons Hotel. Hear the Australian Chamber Orchestra perform a beautiful programme of Haydn and Bach, be taken on a fascinating behind-the-scenes tour of the Sydney Opera House, have the opportunity to capture the sights of Sydney with a guided city architectural walking tour, experience a sumptuous degustation menu at LuMi - one of Sydney's finest restaurants, and be captivated by Carmen, the spectacular and extravagant Handa Opera on the Harbour. ‘Carmen stamps her feet, tosses back her hair and draws you into her world. Men fall instantly under her spell, and once you’ve heard her sultry Habanera, you’ll fall for opera’s favourite femme fatale, too.’ With its famous Spanish rhythms and tunes, the vivacious and captivating production of Bizet’s Carmen is a perfect choice for this magnificent setting that will light up the waters of Sydney.
Other additional activities such as the Australian Ballet’s contemporary production of Faster, or the latest dramatic production from the Sydney Theatre will also be on offer.
