Opera in the Domain
Time Out says
Be serenaded by Opera Australia's star singers, under the stars
Sydney loves its culture served al fresco – and it’s hard to top Opera in the Domain for a starlit experience. Opera Australia’s all-killer-no-filler annual free picnic night features favourite overtures and arias performed by company soloists accompanied by the Australian Opera and Ballet Orchestra.
The gates open at 4pm to enable audience members to set up camp – but mind you don't bring plastic ground sheets, ice, high chairs or beach umbrellas – all of which are banned.
The performance lasts approximately 2 hours, with an interval.
