Aida on Sydney Harbour
Verdi's Aida opera, performed and recorded live on Sydney Harbour - "awash with the light of the city and the Sydney Opera House silhouetted against the setting sun".
"In Aida, Verdi masterfully puts the intimate affairs of the heart against the grandeur of the universe: where kingdoms rise and fall and the sands of time grind onwards... Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour has become a huge part of the cultural landscape, combining all of the things Sydney does best: world-class opera, fine dining, sunsets and spectacle on the harbour's edge. It's a monumental undertaking, with a team of more than 700 people involved in the project before a single note is heard over the harbour. Aida is the biggest opera we've ever performed on the opera stage." (Opera Australia)
