Wel­come to Syd­ney in April!

Opera Aus­tralia presents one of the best out­door opera spec­tac­u­lars you have ever seen this month, right here on beau­ti­ful Syd­ney Har­bour. This year’s Handa Opera on Syd­ney Har­bour is per­form­ing Puc­cini’s clas­sic opera “La Bo­hème”. With the in­cred­i­ble set­ting of the Syd­ney city sky­line, Syd­ney Har­bour Bridge and Syd­ney Opera House, it is set to be a night to re­mem­ber (page 18).

In this is­sue we chat with Jayde Westaby, star of “Mamma Mia! The Mu­si­cal”, about all things ABBA. The award-win­ning show is now play­ing to sold-out crowds at the Capi­tol Theatre (page 14).

The awe-inspiring Bi­en­nale of Syd­ney fes­ti­val is cur­rently on dis­play in lo­ca­tions around the city, in­clud­ing the Art Gallery of NSW and the Mu­seum of Con­tem­po­rary Art Aus­tralia. All the ex­hi­bi­tions are free and it runs un­til mid-june. You won’t want to miss Ai Wei­wei’s mas­sive, pow­er­ful in­stal­la­tion on Cock­a­too Is­land (page 16).

Jes­sica Feen­stra takes us on a trip north to New­cas­tle, to dis­cover the hid­den gems of this fa­mous port city. From the best places to eat and drink, to spec­tac­u­lar swim­ming spots and scenic walks (page 46).

Turn to our Where Now fea­ture (page 10) for April’s must-see shows, ex­hi­bi­tions and per­for­mances in­clud­ing the Syd­ney Com­edy Fes­ti­val, Gar­den Art Month at the Royal Botanic Gar­den Syd­ney and “The Re­sistible Rise of Ar­turo Ui” at Syd­ney Theatre Com­pany.

How­ever you choose to spend your time here, we hope you en­joy your stay in glo­ri­ous Syd­ney!
