The are very few names in musical theatre that turn as many heads and prick up as many ears as the name Lin-Manuel Miranda. The talented songwriter and actor has lent lyrics to some of the world's most famous productions and musically-charged films, including Hamilton, Encanto, tick, tick…BOOM!, and In the Heights.

The latter is one of his most beloved works, starting as a script written in his sophomore year at university. Now, 25 years after that first draft saw daylight (which has since won four Tony Awards® and earned a film adaptation in 2021), In the Heights is hitting Sydney Opera House from Saturday, July 20 to Sunday, August 25.

If you've never had the pleasure, In the Heights follows Usnavi, a bodega owner in the Washington Heights district of New York City. It's a vibrant community of hard-working residents, all in desperate need of change. Then, a winning lottery ticket enters the fray, but who will be the one to claim it in a community where everyone deserves a chance?

With a soundtrack charged with red-hot contemporary salsa and a story about the power of community, this will be an unmissable winter event to catch during its five week run at Sydney Opera House.
