Bliss is an opera in three acts by Brett Dean to a libretto by Amanda Holden. The libretto is based on Peter Carey's novel Bliss, which had earlier been made into the 1985 film Bliss. The opera premiered at the Sydney Opera House on 12 March 2010. It then travelled to the Edinburgh Festival and opened the 2010/11 season at the Hamburg State Opera. A performance of the work lasts for about two hours and forty minutes.
