At the pinnacle of glamorous New Year’s Eve celebrations is the Opera Australia event – an evening of fine dining, arias and operettas, bookended by a view of the midnight fireworks from Sydney’s best vantage point.

There are three ticketing options: one for a pre-performance dinner, one for a midnight party and a ticket which will allow you access to both, and one with a performance of either La Boheme or a gala concert of opera’s greatest hits included.

Go all out for $1,422 per person and enjoy the three-course meal and wine before the show, and canapes, drinks and live entertainment before the midnight fireworks. This ticket includes the show price (which is conveniently timed so that intermission is during the 9pm display).

If you’re not feeling up for a full night of entertainment, you can book either performance and then add on the pre-show dinner for $399 or the midnight gathering for $349 per person.

Whichever way you go, the drawcard is that view and a prime spot for the true star of the night – the world famous Sydney fireworks.
