See the inside of one of the worlds most instantly recognisable and famous buildings - the iconic Sydney Opera House!
The Sydney Opera House is a miracle of architecture and engineering, a work of art that came into existence against impossible odds, to then become one of the busiest performing arts centres in the world.
Working with rich, new audio-visual components, where images are projected onto the fabric of the building itself, your guide will take you on an emotional journey that rivals any opera plot with its dramatic twists and turns. Some 1,500 performances, from opera to circus, rock and cabaret, are staged at the Sydney Opera House each year, to audiences of around 1.5 million people.
With 3 tours to choose from you will be spoilt for choice:
• The Essential Tour takes you through the history and architecture. See what goes on inside Australia’s most famous building and get a brief overview of the Australian performing arts scene.
• The Backstage Tour is a behind-the-scenes look at how the Opera House operates. Stand on stage in the Concert Hall and Opera Theatre, visit the orchestra pit and dressing rooms. Includes breakfast!
