From America’s musical mastermind, Lin-Manuel Miranda (Hamilton, Moana) comes the quadruple Tony Award® winning, salsa-fuelled musical about a vibrant community in Washington Heights.

Starring Ryan Gonzalez (Moulin Rouge! The Musical) as Usnavi, Olivia Vásquez (Moulin Rouge! The Musical, West Side Story) as Vanessa and latin music extraordinaire Richard Valdez as the loveable Piragua Guy. Experience the incredible journey of love, ambition, and community in this must-see smash hit musical.

Trapped running a debt-ridden bodega, Usnavi longs for a simpler life in the Dominican Republic. Alongside him, a community as vibrant as the city itself yearns for change. A winning lottery ticket is sold, but to whom? Is it the family who long to send their daughter to an ivy league school; or the woman desperately trying to find a home?  

Feel the pulse of the neighbourhood with Lin-Manuel Miranda’s debut musical, as he seamlessly weaves storytelling with contemporary beats, hip hop, salsa, and Latin rhythms. A colourful, vibrant, joyful musical that will sweep you up in its celebration of community and cultural pride.

In the Heights plays 20 July – 25 August, 2024 at the Sydney Opera House

Presented by Sydney Opera House in association with Joshua Robson Productions
