Joan Sutherland Theatre - Sydney Opera House
Sydney
New South Wales
With the flickering of a candle, love sparks. Two hands meet in the dark and four friends’ lives are changed forever.

The way first love grabs hold and floods you with something you’ve never felt before. The fire that burns the first time jealousy flares. The growing up you do in the instant that you realise love can’t last forever. Puccini takes these achingly human feelings and sets them to music - music that soars with the ecstasy of love, crackles with the pain of jealousy and cries with the agony of loss.

Welcome to the world of The Miser, where passion and penny-pinching go head to head in a ribald comedy of manners. John Bell stars as the stingy, avaricious and obnoxious Harpagon, a money-lender who makes Ebenezer Scrooge look generous.
