Invictus Games

The word ‘Invictus’ is Latin for ‘unconquered’ and embodies the fighting spirit of our wounded, injured and ill servicemen and women. They have been tested and challenged, but they have not been overcome. They have proven that by embracing each other and the support of family and friends, they can reclaim their future. They are Invictus.

The precision and skill of competitors, combined with the exacting standards of the competition, makes archery one of the most exciting Invictus Games sports. The aim of archery is to shoot arrows as close to the centre of a target as possible. The objective is to hit the centre of the target, making archery a test of accuracy, concentration and strength. Individual novice, recurve and compound events will be offered at the Invictus Games Sydney 2018, with separate events for men and women. A mixed team competition, consisting of three archers per team, will also be contested. Competitors are permitted to shoot from a sitting or standing position, depending on their ability.

Athletics is one of the most popular sports of the Invictus Games. Track events demand both speed and endurance, and cover distances from 100 to 1500 metres, as well as the 4 x 100m mixed and women’s relays. Field events include discus, shot put and long jump, which is making its Invictus Games debut at Sydney. Competitors of all abilities may participate, including those competing in wheelchairs, with prostheses, or under the guidance of a sighted person known as a guide. Events are divided by the functional categorisation of the competitors with separate events for men and women.

John Russell Australia’s French impressionist

Discover the Sydney artist at the heart of impressionism

Part of the French avant-garde of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, John Russell was a close friend of Vincent van Gogh and Auguste Rodin, taught impressionist colour theory to Henri Matisse and dined with Claude Monet. Yet history has largely forgotten Russell, who was a key member of this ground-breaking group of artists during one of the most exhilarating periods in art history.

Bringing together 120 paintings, drawings and watercolours – including a number of works by his contemporaries – this major retrospective is the first survey of Russell’s work in 40 years. It offers fresh perspectives on French impressionism, reintroducing Russell’s extraordinary painting to today’s audiences.

The exhibition presents the breadth of Russell’s art from his studies in London and Paris, through impressionism and experimentation with pure colour, to his later fauve-like luminous watercolours. It features significant works that were only rediscovered recently and are exhibited publicly for the first time.

Many of the works – which include loans from the Van Gogh Museum, Musée d’Orsay, Musée Rodin, Philadelphia Museum of Art, Harvard Art Museums and public and private collections in Australia, Hong Kong and the United Kingdom – have not been shown for decades and some never before.

Many of our most well known and loved works from the Art Gallery of NSW collection are on display in the Australian galleries.

Within our magnificent Grand Courts, you’ll find key names in art history.

Nick Cave - Until

Until is American artist Nick Cave’s most ambitious project to date. Comprised of thousands of found objects which together make us feel as if we have entered a rich sensory tapestry and stepped directly inside the belly of one of Cave’s iconic Soundsuits.

Nick Cave’s first Soundsuit, made out of twigs, was a direct response to the Rodney King beating, a visual image about social justice that was both brutal and empowering. Just as the violence around the Rodney King beating was the impetus to Cave’s early work, the death of men such as Eric Garner, Trayvon Martin, and Michael Brown drives his new imagery for Until. For Cave’s Carriageworks installation, Until — a play on the phrase ‘innocent until proven guilty’, or in this case ‘guilty until proven innocent’  he addresses issues of gun violence, gun control policy, race relations, and gender politics in America and its resonance across the world.

Cave has come to see himself as a messenger, endeavouring to coalesce communities and discuss important issues. ‘I view this work as an elaborate community forum, as much as a work of sculpture,’ notes Cave. As such Until at Carriageworks will become a stage for international and Australian artists who will create and present work and lead discussions in partnership with Sydney communities.

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.
