Sunrise and sunset in the saloon of Elizabeth Bay House

Enjoy works by Handel, Resphighi and Haydn performed by mezzo soprano Anna Yun with  a string quartet from the Australian Opera and Ballet Orchestra in the stunning saloon of Elizabeth Bay House.

Whether by accident or design, Elizabeth Bay House was built in direct alignment with the sun’s rays on the winter solstice, creating a magnificent display each year.  The concert program takes inspiration from this phenomenon, and relates to the theme of sunrise and sunset.

Bach Chaconne from Partita No. 2 in D minor
Handel Aria from Partenope - 'Sento amor con novi dardi'
Respighi 'Il tramonto' - 'The Sunset'
Haydn Quartet Opus 76 No. 4 - 'The Sunrise' Quartet.

Following the concert, you will have an opportunity to view the magnificent interiors of Elizabeth Bay House – once considered ‘the finest house in the colony’, and then enjoy the views over Sydney Harbour with light refreshments in the dining room and verandah as you mingle with the artists.
