From the Event Organizer:
Escape the crowds and head to Cockatoo Island for Opera Australia’s brand new island performance in the middle of Sydney Harbour.
Carmen tosses her hair, stamps her feet and the whole world falls under her spell. Revel in the irresistible Spanish tunes, sultry story, and dark undercurrent of Carmen. You’ll hear the flirty Habanera and famous Toreador song amid a spectacle that features fire twirling, car crashes, and fireworks. Your night begins with a ferry ride across the glittering water to the world-heritage-listed sanctuary of Cockatoo Island. Step off the boat and you’re surrounded by layers of history. Once a meeting place for the Eora Nation, the site is now dotted with the industrial relics of a century of ship-building and architectural marvels dating back to Sydney’s convict past. Raise a glass with friends and grab a snack from an array of pop-up bars and eateries on the foreshore before settling in under the stars for an unforgettable night out. You can even sail right up to the event and book a mooring to watch the show. Sung in French with English subtitles.
Return Ferry Transport from Darling Harbour to Cockatoo Island is included in the ticket.
This event will take place in a COVID-safe environment, subject to public health orders. All attendees will be required to show proof of vaccination as a condition of entry.
