Opera in the Domain 2022 Date, Time, Address, Tickets & Prices, Sydney

Opera Australia presents this yearly event and has previously presented popular works including Carmen, La Boheme, Candide and Turandot. Previously referred to as Opera in the Park, Opera in the Domain was rebranded in 2005. Sydneysiders attend in their thousands with picnics and chairs and settle in for beautiful music and performances under the stars.

This free event is open to all and visitors are welcome to bring picnics and low sitting chairs. Please note that high backed chairs and umbrellas are not permitted. There are also bars selling drinks and food stalls selling food throughout the night. Gates open from 4pm, with the show starting later in the evening. The performance runs for approximately 2 hours, with intermission.

Visiting the Domain is easy by train. Martin Place on the South Coast Line is the closest station and St James and Circular Quay (Airport, Inner West and South Line) are also an easy walk.

  • Hi,

    You have in your website the Opera in the Domain (Sydney Festival):

    However in the Sydney Festival website this does not appear

    Are you sure that this event takes place?

    Thank you.

    • Hi Yigal,

      I have also look across a number of Sydney event websites and also The Domain’s what’s on page, and i also can’t find any details on the 2021 event (just other websites like mine which have placeholders for mid-Jan).

      We update our information on a regular basis, so we’ll add any new details once they become available. Right now the page serves as a placeholder for a possible event, as a 2022 event hasn’t been announced and there has been no comment of the upcoming event being cancelled or rescheduled.
