The moment the curtain went up on the original West Side Story on Broadway, musical theatre changed forever.

Hailed as the greatest Broadway musical of all time, the genius of West Side Story’s creators is unquestioned. The remarkable collaboration between Leonard Bernstein, Arthur Laurents, Stephen Sondheim and Jerome Robbins produced a timeless masterpiece.

Bernstein’s world-famous score features unforgettable songs including ‘ Maria’, ‘Tonight’, ‘Somewhere’, ‘America’ and ‘I Feel Pretty’, that have been universally adored for generations; proving this iconic dance musical remains one of the most poignant stage works of the twentieth century.

A modern retelling of Romeo and Juliet; this tragic love story tells the tale of two young people whose happiness is destroyed by the hate of two enemy camps in New York City’s urban jungle. The “Jets”, sons of previous immigrants to America, battle the new arrivals from Puerto Rico, the “Sharks”, for domination of the streets.

Director Joey McKneely’s vibrant new staging will feature some of Australia’s most exciting young talent performing Jerome Robbins’ original ground-breaking choreography in two of Australia’s most iconic theatres. The ideal fusion of dance, music, and theatre; experience this internationally celebrated production of West Side Story for a limited season only.

New Year's Eve on Sydney Harbour with Opera Australia and Katnook
7:00 PM to 12:00 AM     Tue, 31/12/2019
Venue: Sydney Opera House, Sydney NSW

New Year's Eve is the night when Sydney puts on the bling, kicks up its heels and shows the world what a gorgeous thing it is, as a festival of fire explodes across the midnight sky.  Ringside seats to the greatest show on earth are hard to come by, but we've saved some great ones, and you're invited. Leave the crowds behind as you enter the Sydney Opera House and enjoy Katnook Coonawarra Wines alongside fine fare.  

Enjoy drinks or a wonderful meal overlooking Sydney Harbour as you count down to the festival of fire, watching a select opera, or a gala concert of opera hits.  

Then watch the fireworks the whole world wants to see from the best vantage point in Sydney—through the glass-fronted sails of the Sydney Opera House.  Opera Australia has done all the planning for you, so you can relax.  There’s nowhere in the world like Sydney on New Year’s Eve, and there’s nowhere closer to the action than Sydney Opera House. 

Full details will be released closer to the time but most likely will offer options such as those offered in 2018:

Pre-Performance Dinner 
Look out over Sydney Harbour as you dine on a three-course menu, matched with Katnook wines and beverages in the Northern Foyer from 5:30pm.
