The Intercontinental Sydney holds centre stage in the Harbour City. Built from and above the 1851 Treasury building on Macquarie Street, the ‘diva’ demands attention. How fitting that the grande dame has partnered with Opera Australia to deliver – the VIP Parsifal Insider Experience for one exclusive night only – August 14.
Wagner’s epic Parsifal starring the world’s finest tenor, Jonas Kaufmann will be performed for 6 nights only at the Sydney Opera House – the InterContinental’s neighbour. The InterContinental Sydney is a short walk from Sydney’s Opera House. The VIP Parsifal Insider Experience is a rare opportunity to combine one of the must do performances of 2017 with a luxurious night at the InterContinental Sydney.
The exclusive package? Two A Reserve tickets to the performance, an overnight stay in an Eastern Harbour View Room, access to Club Intercontinenal and it’s sweeping views, a signed souvenir Parsifal souvenir program and a voucher for intermission drinks. Overlooking the Opera House, the incomparable Club InterContinental spoils Club guests with those unobstructed views across the harbour, deluxe breakfast, delicious twilight drinks and canapes as well as express check-in and check-out.
When we say Parsifal is epic it is no exaggeration. At 5 hours and a half hours (with two intermissions) this heroic opera performed in German draws upon all the resources of the Australian Opera and Ballet Orchestra. The Orchestra, under the baton of Pinchas Steinberg and joined by a cast of international and Australian stars, will fill the stage. The 3-act opera is based on the heroic 13th century poem telling the story of Arthurian knight Parzival and his quest for the Holy Grail. The full majesty and power of this rarely performed Wagnerian masterpiece will light up the Sydney Opera House Concert Hall.
The VIP Parsifal package is the latest in a series of Insider Experiences devoted to the arts, fine food and life balance. Partnering with Opera Australia this experience is available exclusively online at https://www.icsydney.com.au/stay/insider-experience-match-majesty-wagners-parsifal
