Opera Australia announces exclusive, opera lovers weekend holiday packages

Opera Australia has created two ultimate weekend holiday packages for 2019 that are sure to satiate any serious opera fan’s appetite for the art form.

Aficionados can immerse themselves into the opera world for an entire, glorious weekend in either Sydney or Melbourne with a meticulously curated program that includes some of the world’s finest opera, fabulous food and exclusive behind the scenes access.

The Ultimate Opera Weekend is a veritable feast of culture that will maximise every minute, with unprecedented access to Australia’s national opera company.

Packages feature premium reserve tickets to a selection of performances, exclusive talks, behind the scenes tours, as well as dining experiences with Opera Australia performers and key personnel including Artistic Director Lyndon Terracini and CEO Rory Jeffes. This is the ultimate operatic VIP weekend experience.

The packages include some of the most loved works at some of the nation’s most iconic cultural locations, including the Sydney Opera House, Mrs Macquaries Point and the Arts Centre Melbourne.

The Ultimate Opera Weekend is one of the most luxe and indulgent ways to enjoy the best of opera that both Sydney and Melbourne have to offer.

The Sydney weekend package covers an incredible range of performances, with tickets to the romantic classic La Bohème, the provocative Salome, and the return of Graeme Murphy’s much-loved Turandot at the Sydney Opera House, as well as seats to the hottest show to hit the outdoor stage with Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour – West Side Story.

Visitors to Melbourne can enjoy tickets to a number of firsts, with the Australian premiere of Il Viaggo a Reims, the highly anticipated Melbourne premiere of Cosi fan tutte, and the ultimate La Dolce Vita glamour of Verdi’s Rigoletto, all playing at the Arts Centre Melbourne.

These packages offer an unforgettable, fully immersive weekend for existing lovers of opera as well as those looking to dive head first as newcomers to this cultural form.
