Fly in, take a seat and enjoy the music.

Whether you’re an opera fan or looking for the ultimate ‘date-night’, at Robb Report we think we’ve got just the ticket.

Captain’s Choice, pioneers of private jet travel have created a unique itinerary in the country’s centre to showcase Opera Australia’s Gala, an alfresco concert set in front of the iconic Uluru.

The spectacular 3-day journey that takes place from December 11-13 this year, will see Opera Australia and Captain’s Choice roll out the red carpet in the red centre. With guests departing Sydney aboard Captain’s Choice’s private jet towards Uluru.

On board expect nothing less than fine wines and a gourmet lunch before touching down and being ushered into Sails in the Desert, a five-star location with a large swimming pool – in case you need to beat the heat – and where views of Uluru are brought into focus.

The culinary delights don’t end once you’re out of the air, with an exquisite and private Sounds of Silence dinner planned in the outback. The food is inspired by the surrounds, incorporating native bush ingredients, while the only thing breaking up the clinking of forks and glassware is the low hum of a didgeridoo.

On the second day spend the morning exploring the Outback’s terrain through trails through Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park or Walpa Gorge where you can capture centuries of indigenous history.

As the sun sets, take your seat in the Field of Light, which sees 50,000 glass spheres illuminate, and listen to the Opera Australia’s greatest hits as their finest singers accompanied by a chamber orchestra perform in front of Uluru.

Of course, the final day sees you depart Sails and Uluru, with Captain’s Choice chartering guests back to Sydney, with the option of a Brisbane pit-stop available.

The total journey per person twin share is $4,250 and single room is $4,645.
