If you’ve missed the breathtaking images of a giant sun rising out of Sydney Harbour (in the evening!), you must have been living under a rock. Media watched as technicians tested the giant inflatable orbs representing the sun and the moon in Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour – Madama Butterfly this week and the images have spread like wildfire.
These pictures will shatter your perception of opera, wrote Buzzfeed. See if for yourself at the event – opening March 21 and playing six nights a week until April 12.
Meanwhile at the Sydney Opera House, the colourful puppetry at the heart of Julie Taymor’s The Magic Flute continues to dazzle children and adults, Eugene Onegin is pulling at heartstrings and Milijana Nikolic is thrilling as the dangerous Carmen.
