Enjoy a musical week in Sydney with Hayllar Music Tours and Tour Leader Genevieve Lang, featuring Donizetti’s Lucia di Lammermoor and Handel’s Athalia.  

Attend the opening night of Opera Australia’s startling production of Donizetti’s Lucia di Lammermoor starring Australian soprano Jessica Pratt. Jessica Pratt has joined the ranks of Nellie Melba and Joan Sutherland: one of just three Australians to sing Lucia on the hallowed La Scala stage. Now, she returns home to make her Sydney Opera House debut, performing alongside acclaimed American tenor Michael Fabiano in the role of Edgardo.

Guests of the tour will also enjoy premium seats to the final night of Pinchgut Opera’s production of Handel’s Athalia at the City Recital Hall. Starring Emma Pearson as Athalia and Miriam Allen as Josabeth, the brilliance and beauty of Handel’s music shines through with exceptional singing and sublime music-making from Erin Helyard, the Cantillation Chorus and the Orchestra of the Antipodes.

To top off the musical extravagances of the week, guests of the tour will also enjoy a private recital with Erin Helyard and soprano Miriam Allen, a unique experience not to be missed.

All of this, plus private guided tours of the Art Gallery of NSW, the historically rich Macquarie Street and Vaucluse House. When not sampling Sydney’s abundant history and fine arts scene, you will enjoy gourmet meals at Vaucluse House, the Art Gallery of NSW and at Aria Restaurant overlooking the Sydney Opera House.
