THE OPERA GALA ON NEW YEAR'S EVE

New Year's Eve is the night when Sydney puts on the bling, kicks up its heels and shows the world what a gorgeous thing it is, as a festival of fire explodes across the midnight sky. Ringside seats to the greatest show on earth are hard to come by, but we've saved some great ones, and you're invited. Be entertained at the Opera Gala, featuring favorites by Verdi, Puccini, Rossini and more.

Watch the fireworks the whole world watches. Interval is timed for the 9pm fireworks and the Sydney Opera House stays open well past the midnight fireworks. There’s nowhere in the world like Sydney on New Year's Eve and there's nowhere closer to the action than Sydney Opera House. Make this your most glamorous and memorable New Year ever.
