Opera classics, but with a twist, is what you can expect from Opera Up Late, the raunchy, electric and fabulous show that’s coming to Sydney's most iconic building for WorldPride this February. 

Hosted by international cabaret star and opera lover Reuben Kaye, Opera Up Late will feature opera hits reimagined, a handful of musical theatre and pop numbers, plus plenty of drag. Whether you’re new to dipping your toes into the world of opera or are a seasoned viewer, one thing’s for sure, this is no regular night at the opera.

Directed by the award-winning Shaun Rennie, Opera Up Late will be performed in the Joan Sutherland Theatre at the Sydney Opera House for two nights only on Saturday, February 18 and Thursday, 25 February – so don’t think twice about getting yourself a hot ticket.

Dress up to the nines, bring your mum, a date, your best girlfriends or go by yourself, enjoy a glass or two of Champagne and settle in for an unforgettable evening. Tickets for Opera Up Late start from $69 per person, plus booking fees, and are on sale now.
