A delightful high tea paired with an intimate, fully costumed performance of Verdi’s sublimetragedy in a gracious Woollahra hotel steeped in history.
Opera Bites, Sydney’s favourite boutique opera company has partnered with The Hughenden Boutique Hotel in Woollahra to bring you an elegant Opera High Tea. Sumptuous afternoon tea delights are paired with a lavishly costumed opera in this stunning historic location. Step back in time through the doors of this gracious 1870’s residence and immerse yourself in the world of Verdi’s sublime tragedy La traviata. Experience Verdi’s exquisite drama in the intimate surrounds of one of Sydney’s true heritage gems in this unforgettable event.
La traviata tells the tragic tale of Violetta, a 19th century courtesan and society girl who, in failing health and much to her own surprise, falls in love with Alfredo. An unsuitable match in the eyes of both society and Alfredo’s father, their doomed love offers up some of opera’s most beautiful musical moments. Expect lavish costumes, party scenes and music to die for. Performed in Italian with English narration.
