Where to book Sydney Opera House New Year’s Eve event tickets

Have an unbelievable start to 2019 with an opera followed by the midnight fireworks.

Sydney is famous for being one of the greatest places in the world to ring in the new year.

Pair that with a seat in the city's iconic Sydney Opera House for its New Year's Eve show and you've got a night that will be hard to forget.

Getting tickets to this event offers you a premier position to view both the 9pm and midnight fireworks. This year, the two shows on offer are the opera La Bohème and a collection of arias by Verdi, Puccini and Rossini at Opera Gala. Here's how you can get tickets.

The Sydney Opera Houses' New Year's shows:

Both La Bohème and The Opera Gala's intervals are perfectly timed with the 9pm fireworks display where you can step out and see the pyrotechnics display.

Guests are welcome to stay at the Opera House until the midnight light fireworks. For unparalleled views, canapes, drinks and live entertainment, book a spot at the Midnight Party. This can be added alongside your opera tickets when you book.

      Hi Igor,

      Thanks for getting in touch with finder. I hope all is well with you. :)

      It’s nice to know that you’re preparing for the NY Fireworks. I would assume that you are referring to Bradfield Park. It is a popular site for families. It offers views of the eastern and western sides of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. As of this time, I’ve looked into their official website and there’s no fee to get inside. The place opens from 8 am until 1 am.

      I hope this helps. Should you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to reach us out again.

      Have a wonderful day!
