An Opera Australia spokesperson said the spectacle will be one of the iconic events that Australia will be known for overseas. “We are confident it will grow to an annual event and it will attract people from all over the world,” the spokesperson said. The spectacle will run for three weeks at the Royal Botanical Gardens and can be watched by up to 3000 guests.last_img read more

A bulletproof vehicle could hypothetically sit still and take on gunfire without worries. A super-quick vehicle could outrun gun fire.
