Step into your own Grand Opera!


Opera Bites, Sydney’s favourite boutique opera company has partnered with The Castlereagh Boutique Hotel to bring you an incredible evening of sumptuous costumed opera complete with a bespoke menu and select fine wines to match. As you step through the doors of this stunning heritage listed dining room you’ll find yourself immersed in the world of Verdi’s sublime tragedy La traviata. Be an exclusive guest at Violetta’s lavish banquet where all your senses will be engaged. Live every note, experience every moment of Verdi’s exquisite drama in this unforgettable event.


La traviata tells the tragic tale of Violetta, a 19th century courtesan 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.
