Opera Australia has added another outdoor spectacular to its program, today announcing  the inaugural New Year’s Eve Opera Gala on Cockatoo Island. 

The Cockatoo Island event is in addition to OA’s annual NYE opera performance in the Joan Sutherland  Theatre in the Sydney Opera House. 

The new outdoor event is giving visitors and Sydneysiders even more reason to come out and kick-up their  heels after months of lockdowns and COVID-19 restrictions. 

“We’ve all been starved of live entertainment so we’re inviting everyone to come and celebrate New Year’s  Eve with us, to say farewell to 2021 and its lockdowns, and embrace the beginning of a fresh and  invigorating new year,” said OA’s Artistic Director Lyndon Terracini.
