modern retelling of Puccini’s tale of love and honour, Madama
This year is the third opera to be staged on the
magnificent water stage, suspended over the harbour against a backdrop
of the Sydney Opera House and the Harbour Bridge. This outdoor
spectacle includes a giant sun and moon - both 12 metres wide - which
will rise from the water to hang above the stage where Japanese soprano
Hiromi Omura will portray tragic Cio-Cio San with her co-star Georgy
Vasiliev who performs the role of Pinkerton.
productions include La Traviata, featuring a giant chandelier floating
above the stage, along with last year's Carmen with spectacular costumes
and staging confirming Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour gets bigger and
better every year! Yes, there are fireworks, of course!
