Puccini's one-act opera masterpiece on the harbour
A nautical noir opera under the stars and on the harbour. Puccini’s one-act masterpiece (the first opera in II Trittico) is a darkly romantic tale of passion, desperation and heartbreak.
Il Tabarro will be staged aboard The Carpentaria, a historic lightship built in 1917 – the same year Puccini finished work on the composition. Innovative director Constantine Costi and his team are taking this brooding opera to an updated setting inspired by 1930s Depression-era Sydney. Conductor Simon Bruckard leads a cast of exceptional Australian talent and a live orchestra for an unmissable night.
This event is free and ticketed. Register your interest to be notified when tickets are released in December.
This event will also be available to watch via livestream on Friday 12 January as part of Sydney Festival's AT HOME digital program.
