Puccini’s one-act opera masterpiece on the Harbour.
A nautical noir opera under the stars and on the harbour.
Puccini’s one-act masterpiece (the first opera in II Trittico) is a darkly romantic tale of passion, desperation and heartbreak.
Il Tabarro will be staged aboard The Carpentaria, a historic lightship built in 1917 – the same year Puccini finished work on the composition. Innovative director Constantine Costi and his team are taking this brooding opera to an updated setting inspired by 1930s Depression-era Sydney. Conductor Simon Bruckard leads a cast of exceptional Australian talent and a live orchestra for an unmissable night.
Featuring exceptional Australian talent and a live orchestra, this is free event is coming to the Australian National Maritime Museum from 9-13 January, 2024
Il Tabarro is proudly presented by Sydney Festival and Victorian Opera.
