Italian Opera Gala
Stars of the European Opera

Moving drama meets electrifying music as a host of Australian stars, the Sydney Philharmonia Choirs and conductor Donald Runnicles bring you the greatest moments of Italian opera.

Opera flourished on the stages of 19th-century Italy as maestri like Giuseppe Verdi matched realistic scenarios, compelling characters and heightened emotion with thrilling music. In extravagant historical epics, gripping dramas and comedies, Verdi’s brilliant theatrical instincts shine in show-stopping moments that put the art of the opera singer in the spotlight.

The next generation of Italian composers Mascagni and Leoncavallo made art out of everyday life where near-impressionistic music amplifies the tragedies of village life and crimes of passion.

Relive the emotion with the Sydney Symphony – sets and staging are optional when the music and the drama are this powerful.
