Opera Australia Partners With Sofitel for Turandot and Carmen

  • Written by Rebecca Astier

With an exciting Opera season upon us, Sofitel Sydney Wentworth and Opera Australia have come together to create the ultimate cultural experience for guests who want to embrace the music and magic of Turandot or Carmen, whilst enjoying luxury service and accommodation.

So Cultural Package

Designed to appeal to both Sydney-siders and interstate visitors alike, the aptly called So Cultural Package features a luxurious overnight stay at the Sofitel Sydney Wentworth, with a pre-performance dinner and daily breakfast for two included.

With any So Culture Package booked with the hotel during the performance season of Turandot and Carmen, each guest will also receive two A-Reserve tickets to enjoy the best of Opera's cultural scene in Sydney at Mrs Macquaries Chair (Turandotˆ's outdoor stage) or the Sydney Opera House (Carmen).

Sofitel Sydney Wentworth's So Cultural is priced from $821 per night*. For more information or to make a booking, visit or call the hotel direct on 02 9228 9188.

Exclusive lobby display by Opera Australia

Sofitel Sydney Wentworth is currently hosting an impressive Opera on Sydney Harbour lobby display, for an exclusive preview of the performances. The exhibit includes costumes from previous Opera on the Harbour performances including a photography wall of images. The lobby display will be active until the 24th April 2016. Later in the year it will be replaced by a display for the Opera, Carmen.

About Turandot and Carmen

Taking place on the water's edge in a pop-up opera house with purpose-built bars, restaurants and a grandstand under the stars, Turandot is a story of a death-marked love told with salt in the air, light on the sails and the city skyline reflected in your glass. It's the best of Sydney in a single evening: singing, sunsets and sparkling wine, in perfect harmony.

The new 2016 production of Carmen directed by John Bell (Bell Shakespeare) will play at the Sydney Opera House featuring a colourful, physical and entertaining perfomance with punch and irresistible Spanish tunes.

Turandot on Sydney Harbour: now until 24th April 2016
Carmen at Sydney Opera House: 16th June – 12th August 2016
