After days of torrential rain in Sydney, the sun is finally back. Just in time for that first night at the opera, in the open air. The stage is set on the water, in Sydney Bay. An exceptional setting according to Ian: “ Sydney Harbor is a magical place. Everyone coming here says to themselves “wow”. So seeing an opera here is fantastic. »
This evening, wearing a mask is recommended, but not compulsory, as more than 2,000 spectators are expected. AT Like Noah, everyone here is aware that they are indulging in a pleasure that has become rare during a pandemic: ” I think we were very careful from the start and we had restrictions that were difficult for many people to live with. But I think they helped us deconfining culture, it’s a huge chance. »
The Traviata on the water in Sydney, it’s every night, except Monday, until the end of April 2021. A show that brings together more than 70 artists. And as if that weren’t enough, fireworks are also fired every evening.
