Opera Australia’s brand new, Sydney-exclusive open-air event, Opera on Cockatoo Island, launches with a gritty new production of Bizet’s much-loved Carmen, giving visitors a thrilling opportunity to experience world-class opera under the stars with stunning harbour views.

Set in the industrial surrounds of Sydney’s historic Cockatoo Island, this edgy production had been created by celebrated director Liesel Badorrek and set and costume designer Mark Thompson.

It's an exciting and immersive production of Carmen, with motorbike stunts and nightly fireworks plus music that even first time opera-goers will recognise and enjoy.
