I bought tickets to see an Opera at the Sydney Opera House for my husband to celebrate our 3rd wedding anniversary. We went and watched 'The Elixir of Love' which was an Opera set in the Australian Outback. It was sung in Italian but there were funny subtitles using Australian slang e.g. strewth she's a looker. It was very entertaining and we both thoroughly enjoyed our introduction to opera.
We were in the Joan Sutherland Theatre and because it wasn't very busy we got to move to more expensive seats for free! Bonus!
