This was the most wonderful experience ever. The costumes, scenery, singing, dancing were all superb.
An amazing experience that we will never forget. Collection of the tickets was quick and easy and considering we purchased the cheapest priced seats, the view was excellent from the centre of the dress circle. The opera (Magic Flute) was delivered in English in a modern style, the scenery was first class as were the voices of all participants.
I was initially concerned because I booked "The Magic Flute", but itinerary continued to show "The Marriage of Figaro". A phone call to Viator customer service fixed that issue. Others in my travel group were able to pick up their tickets earlier in the day, but mine weren't available until an hour before the performance which was a minor inconvenience.
The Sydney Opera House was a wonderful experience! The architecture and location of the facility is magnificent. The staging and performance was first class. There's not a bad seat in the house. There were an abundance of places to eat nearby before and after the opera. Even if you're not into opera, this is a must do in Australia.
Opera was AMAZING! One thing that I would suggest for those coming from the US, Choose a night towards the end of your trip, otherwise you're EXTREMELY tired by the end of the opera.
Thank you, very good service. We had real pleasure from Lakme performence.Olga
La Boheme was a brilliant performance. The singing was good,The emotion was well portrayed and the staging for the cafe scene was excellent..Compared to the previous La Boheme I saw in Bangkok it was trmendous and thoroughly enjoyable.
This was a very good evening. The only sad part was our seats were at the far left of the stage and it was difficult to impossible to see any of the second floor action (The Barber of Seville). Otherwise the experience was very favorable. The acoustics were tremendous and the enthusiasm of the audience was fantastic.
It was our first opera and we enjoyed it very much. Nice to have the story printed in the handout (stage bill). Seats were wonderful-the balcony was fairly empty so the ushers said we could sit anywhere-lovely.
What a delightful evening! Our seats were perfect, in the front and center of the theatre. Our tickets were available at the Ticket Office when we arrived and it couldn't have been smoother to enjoy a night at the opera.
The opera was beautiful and the venue couldn't be beat. The view across the harbor from the Sydney Opera House was amazing. The interior decor is a little 1970s but all was forgotten when the curtains opened up and the orchestra began to play. I highly recommend that anyone visiting Sydney should see an opera.
