Sydney's outdoor opera attracts new audiences

This year, La Boheme will be performed outside on the harbour with the world-famous Sydney Opera House as its backdrop.

    One of the hottest tickets in Australia's biggest city is for opera on the harbour.

    It has become so popular, sales are outperforming indoor shows at the world-famous Sydney Opera House, and it is attracting a new crowd to the arts.
