Activities Entry tickets Wheelchair accessible Reseller exclusions Nature & adventure

Enjoy a professional live performance of the world-famous Madama Butterfly opera, on the iconic Sydney Harbour. Take in the view as the setting sun glimmers over the city in this unique setting.


  • Take in a world-class opera performance on the iconic Sydney Harbour
  • Attend one of the city’s most popular and major cultural events of the year
  • Experience the world-famous opera of Madama Butterfly in a unique setting
  • Marvel at the extraordinary firework display over the harbor during the show
  • Admire the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge in the background


Witness the critically acclaimed and wildly popular Madama Butterfly, returning to the Handa on the Sydney Harbour stage. Watch the iconic show under the stars, with fireworks every night. Take advantage of pop-up bars and eateries at this impressive outdoor event. Take your seats overlooking ‘Paradise’ – complete with a bamboo grove, a giant moon, and a rising sun floating in the harbour. The picture-perfect backdrop of the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge twinkles with thousands of city lights as night falls. For innocent Cio-Cio-San, love flutters on wings of desire. For brash Pinkerton, a flight of fancy is irresistible. On their wedding night, passions ignite. Yet, how ephemeral is their ecstatic embrace? Puccini’s intimate ode to unrequited love has always been shocking. East meets West, devotion meets disregard, expectation meets disappointment. In the clash, Cio-Cio-San’s dreams shatter. Madama Butterfly on Sydney Harbour is a “five star world-beating triumph, surely one of the most spectacular outdoor operas ever staged anywhere” (Time Out). Join us for Sydney’s best night out. 24 March to 23 April 2023 Tuesday to Sunday at 7:30pm (no performance on Good Friday, 7 April) Fleet Steps, Mrs Macquaries Point
