Join Bill Peach Journeys for Evita at the Sydney Opera House. With more than 20 major awards to its credit, the original Broadway and West End production of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s iconic musical Evita will open at the Sydney Opera House in 2018. Directed by legendary Broadway director Hal Prince, it stars Australia’s much loved Tina Arena. Evita charts the story of Eva Perón, wife of Argentine dictator Juan Perón, from her humble beginnings through to her being heralded as the ‘spiritual leader of the nation’. Featuring some of the best loved songs in musical theatre, including Don’t Cry For Me Argentina, this show truly promises to be the theatrical event of the year!

Arrive Sydney

Transfer from Sydney Airport to the award winning Four Seasons Hotel Sydney, the perfect base for our upcoming Evita Sojourn. Enjoy the many facilities of this exceptional hotel and take advantage of it’s incredible location as it places you among the city’s vibrant shopping and business precincts, and next to the popular historic Rocks district and harbour side Circular Quay. This afternoon we will go beneath the sails and discover what makes the Opera House so inspiring. We will explore this iconic Australian landmark, marvel at its vaulted ceilings and visit areas off-limits to the public. We will discover the story behind its 14 year creation and 58 year history. Learn what inspired Danish architect Jørn Utzon’s evolutionary design and how he solved its engineering challenges.

Your welcome dinner will be hosted by your Journey Director tonight, a perfect chance to further acquaint yourself with your fellow travellers.

Sydney

Today we will enjoy a truly indulgent lunch as we celebrate the beauty of Sydney Harbour while cruising to iconic points of interest for each delicious course. Beginning in Circular Quay, we take in the breathtaking landmarks of the Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House, cruise past Woolloomoolloo, Double Bay and Shark Island arriving at Doyles Watsons Bay, an iconic Sydney Waterfront institution for our entrée. Cruising again around Middle Head we arrive for our sumptuous main course at the Balmoral Public Dining Room ending with dessert whilst cruising past the Spit.

This evening we enter the world of Evita Perón, following her early life of poverty through to her rise to power becoming the most famous Argentine woman in history. Be moved by the stirring music of Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyrics of Tim Rice and discover why this tale about the incredible Argentine icon won the Laurence Olivier Award in the West End and Tony Award for Best Musical on Broadway.

After breakfast at the hotel, we enjoy an indigenous tour of Barangaroo, considered Sydney’s most culturally significant harbourside enclave. We will be immersed in the native history of Sydney Harbour and the importance of the land to Australia’s Aboriginal heritage.

There will be time to explore the headland taking in the 75,000 native Australian trees and shrubs that are a feature of the Reserve, the only public space in Sydney to boast this quota of native flora.

Another celebration of all things floral as we tour the Royal Botanical Gardens and the Calyx. Heralded as the longest contiguous green wall in the southern hemisphere containing 18,000 plants, the Calyx is more than just botany, it is a living piece of art. After our tour we will enjoy high tea in the Calyx.

About Sojourns

Our Sojourn programmes are short break journeys put together in conjunction with themes, events or experiences. These programmes range from cruising New Zealand’s North Islands to world class sporting events and unique experiences throughout Australia and New Zealand.

About Single Traveller Journeys

We recognise the specific requirements of single travellers and that’s why a number of our journeys are single supplement free, affording you the benefit of your own single room, without any, or with significantly reduced extra cost. In fact over 40% of our guests travel alone, and return to Bill Peach Journeys again and again. In this way you can enjoy the camaraderie of your fellow travellers during the day, along with the safety and security of travelling with an escorted group, but still retire to your own personal room in the evening.  Note: The single supplement free offer cannot be taken in conjunction with any other offer.
