Premiering in Sydney on October 28, the production, titled Sydney Opera House – The Opera: The Eighth Wonder, will use the landmark as an opera stage for the first time.

Opera Australia will combine the traditional art-form and a story about 1960s Australia with the latest in sound design, staging, projection, lighting and 3D printing.

The Sydney Opera House itself will be used as an opera stage, with allocated seating set up on the forecourt.

Stage sets will span across the 100m wide steps on platforms and giant inflatable screens will display historic photos. Giant glowing balls of paper, projections and lighting effects will complete the production.
