Since 2012, Opera Australia have created a pop-up outdoor opera theatre in the Royal Botanic Garden each year, seating approximately 3,000. The stage, sitting over the water, is set against the spectacular backdrop of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, Opera House and CBD skyline. In 2023, Madama Butterfly takes to the harbour-side stage.

In this podcast series you’ll hear from some of the people who make this extraordinary event possible. Your host and Opera Australia singer Celeste for a journey into the wonderful world of opera, and staging epic events in the great outdoors.
