As can be seen below, large scale construction work is proceeding at a rapid rate at Lady Macquarie’s Point in Sydney for the inaugural Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour – Verdi’s LA TRAVIATA.
The photographs taken today, Saturday 10th March, reveal a large construction team hard at work on a thankfully bright sunny day after weeks of drenching rain and floods.
The stage can clearly be seen being prepared and sitting above the area for the enclosed orchestra and cast waiting rooms, and to the right of the top pictures – the structure for the Platinum Lounge and Northern Cantina.
The bottom picture glimpses the stage and shows the Platinum Lounge structure more clearly. Work on the stand to seat the audience of 3,000 is not seen and is in preparatory stages only at this time.
