World-class opera in a spectacular setting: Opera Australia's Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour has become an unmissable highlight of the international cultural calendar.

With five productions staged to date, millions have been touched by the tragedy and triumph of great opera, whether through live performances, recordings or cine-casts from the world's most spectacular stage: moored on Sydney Harbour, with the Opera House and Harbour Bridge as a backdrop and fireworks illuminating the night sky.

Now Opera Australia and ABC Classics celebrate these extraordinary productions with Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour: The Greatest Hits, a CD presenting the very best of Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour. From the stirring majesty of the Triumphal March in Aida to Madama Butterfly's tender love song "Un bel dì," and from opera's favourite femme fatale Carmen to Turandot's iconic aria "Nessun dorma," 'The Greatest Hits' features 13 essential moments that showcase the power of opera to move the heart and stir the soul.
