Bangarra Dance Theatre Indigenous Performances at the Sydney Opera House
While in Sydney, head to the Sydney Opera House for the Bangarra Dance Theatre's latest production titled ‘Bennelong'. Inspired by true events, this theatrical dance work highlights the extraordinary curiosity and diplomacy that led an Aboriginal community to survive a clash of cultures, contributing to the establishment of positive relationships between the Eora tribe and the British, for a serene future. Not only do you watch this performance by one of Australia’s foremost dance companies, you also get a 45-minute walking tour of the famous Sydney Opera House. Upgrade to include a delicious tasting plate at Opera Kitchen, an on-site cafe that overlooks Sydney Harbour, or a 3-course meal at ARIA restaurant.
The Bangarra Dance Theatre, founded in 1989, has been lauded for its ability to relate the traditions and cultures of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people into contemporary dance routines.
Arrive at the Sydney Opera House to see the company’s most recent production, Bennelong. Stunning costumes, set designs, music and choreography come together for an experience inside one of Australia’s most famous performing arts venues.
