Monty Python's Spamalot

Lovingly ripped off from the classic film comedy Monty Python and the Holy Grail, SPAMALOT re-tells the legend of King Arthur & his Knights of the Round Table. Guided by the fabulous belting diva The Lady of the Lake, the knights battle their way past various cows, killer rabbits, & French people in pursuit of claiming the legendary Grail.

Monty Python’s SPAMALOT was a smash hit in both New York & London, & won the Tony Award for Best Musical. Now the show comes to Sydney for the very first time, in a production that re-defines the word ‘epic’. Really, really re-defines it.

A diverse, cross-gender cast of heroic/foolish actors (& their assistant stage manager) embrace the satirical, home-made spirit of the original movie & the Monty Python TV series, enlisting the help of some carefully-chosen backdrops, a CD player, & – when all else fails – a large dose of meta-theatrical humour. From the minds of the director & choreographer of 2017’s smash-hit Calamity Jane – audiences should hold on tight, expect the unexpected, & Always Look on the Bright Side of Life.

May Gibbs Exhibition

In December 1916, the first of May Gibbs ever-popular bush baby books were published, featuring her gentle but mischievous gumnut and gum blossom babies. The books were an immediate success and more titles quickly followed, including, in 1918, the adventures of the irrepressible brothers Snugglepot and Cuddlepie.

A century on, this display pays tribute to the work of this celebrated Australian children’s book author, illustrator and early environmentalist. It introduces some of her best known and loved characters and stories, and, drawing on her personal archive, explores her working process and life.

The adventures of May Gibbs’ bush babies will be on show at Sutherland Library in a display of Gibbs’ work, drawn from the State Library of NSW collection.

Celebrate the 100th anniversary of the publication of Snugglepot and Cuddlepie, the much-loved Australian classic.

Literary speaker Walter Mason discusses May Gibbs, her life, works and best known characters: the gumnut babies.

West Side Story - Handa Opera On Sydney Harbour

Tonight, tonight the world is wild and bright. Going mad, shooting sparks into space!

West Side Story exploded onto Broadway in 1957 in a sensational storm of exuberant dance and wistful romance. It was a phenomenon that never faded, “an incandescent piece of work” (The New York Times).

The landmark musical combined four of the biggest talents on Broadway: Leonard Bernstein’s sensational score, Jerome Robbins’ explosive choreography, Arthur Laurent’s powerful book and newcomer Stephen Sondheim’s perfect lyrics.

In 2019, West Side Story takes the iconic stage at Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour. Raise a glass as the sun sets and drink in the view as you share a meal in one of the pop-up bars and restaurants on site. Then sit back to enjoy the enthralling show, complete with live orchestra hidden beneath the dramatic stage and fireworks in the balmy night air.

Encounter the wildness of youth and ecstasy of love as this modern day Romeo and Juliet unfolds under a starlit sky.

On the mean streets of New York's West Side, two rival gangs strut their stuff. But when a Jet falls for a Shark, the stage is set for a rumble. Their wistful love story is studded with infectious songs including 'Somewhere', 'Maria', 'I Feel Pretty', 'America', 'Cool' and of course, 'Tonight'.

As the star-crossed lovers, Maria and Tony, homegrown stars Alexander Lewis and Julie Lea Goodwin reprise the sizzling chemistry of their performances together in The Merry Widow and The Phantom of the Opera.

An all-singing, all-dancing supporting cast takes on Bernstein’s brilliant score and Jerome Robbins’ original electrifying choreography.

Renowned director Francesca Zambello teams up with Brian Thomson and Jennifer Irwin to create a brand new production for the harbour-top stage.

Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour is set in what is easily Sydney’s most spectacular spot, offering an unusual perspective on the bright lights of the city and its most famous icons. The stage is constructed out over the water, but for the audience the show’s backdrop also includes the Sydney Opera House, Harbour Bridge, city skyscrapers and the twinkling stars overhead.

You'll taste the best of Sydney in a single night out: food, fireworks, singing and spectacle under the stars.
