Dress up to the nines, kick up your heels and leave the crowds behind as you stroll towards the iconic sails.

Enjoy a few drinks overlooking the magnificent Sydney Harbour before you take your seats to hear all the biggest arias in our opera gala performance.

Watch the 9 pm fireworks sparkle during the interval, and after the show, make your evening even more special with tickets to our exclusive Midnight Party. Held in the Northern Foyers of the Opera House, this event includes drinks, canapés and entertainment — and of course, a great vantage point for Sydney’s famous NYE fireworks.
