Sydney Opera House: Opera at Its Finest, the 2013-2014 Season

 

There are many lavish and amazing productions that are lined up at the world’s most famous opera house – the Sydney Opera House. After choosing a tour at any time a world-class production is ongoing, you will clearly understand what opera means.

 

The Opera’s 2013-2014 season is getting a lot of buzz these days. For one, the topnotch entertainment will be staged at a world heritage site. Taking a trip to Sydney Opera House is an experience of a lifetime to begin with. For another, there is a nice lineup of first-rate performances from superb talents including Opera Australia.

 

La Boheme will open up the 2014 opera season with its first, a popular opera by Puccini, directed by Gale Edwards. Prior to that, there are many other performances that are considered a must-see. There are well-varied seating options available to meet different budget ranges so you would not have a reason to drop this from your must-do list when you come to visit Australia.

 

The Performances

 

The good news is that there is not only La Boheme to expect as the curtains are drawn. There are various artists and classy productions that are scheduled for a good duration. There’s Falstaff, The Force of Destiny, A Masked Ball, Orpheus in the Underworld, Tosca, La Traviata, Don Pasquale, South Pacific, and Albert Herring. The operas by Puccini and Verdi will be featured throughout the season as well.

 

La Boheme is truly remarkable. This heart-wrenching love story that circles around young artists who are loving while surviving life together at the same time is a must-see. But, as mentioned earlier, it is not the only production you should keep an eye on. All the others on the lineup present their own charm that any opera lover (and anyone who is picking this experience for the same time) would not be able to resist. The intimate production of Tosca, the rarely staged British opera Albert Herring, the vibrant and warm Italian scenes of Don Pasquale, the brilliant new production The Force of Destiny, and all the rest will give you the depth and breadth of opera at the finest Sydney opera House.

 

The Best Time to See an Opera

 

As the Sydney Opera House glitters with pride, you must take advantage of this time to experience a once in a lifetime event. The performances are mostly held at the Opera Theatre, which has seating for 1,547 spectators. Aside from the world class entertainment, excellent views in and around the venue can be enjoyed, especially that of the Sydney Harbour. And oh, there are various accommodation options available nearby. You would not have to worry about a place to stay when you come to visit. Some of the most elegant and classy options include the Park Hyatt Sydney, The Russell Hotel, and the Holiday Inn Old Sydney.

 

Ideally, you must check the itinerary to determine which shows you want to see and where you can see them. Performance dates are dime a dozen, it is not as difficult to find a slated schedule.
