Sydney Opera House edit

Sydney's Premier Entertainment Complex

Inaugurated in 1973, the Sydney Opera House is listed as a great architectural work of the 20th century that brings together multiple strands of creativity and innovation, both in architectural form and structural design. A great urban sculpture set in a remarkable waterscape, at the tip a peninsula projecting into Sydney Harbour, the building has had an enduring influence on architecture. The Opera House comprises three groups of interlocking vaulted ‘shells' which roof two main performances halls and a restaurant. These shell-structure are set upon a vast platform and are surrounded by terrace areas that function as pedestrian concourses. In 1957, when the project of the Sydney opera was attributed by an international jury to the then almost unknown Danish architect Jørn Utzon, it marked a radically new and collaborative approach to construction. In listing the building, the Sydney Opera House is recognized as a great artistic monument accessible to society at large.

  • We met up with our tour guide for the Sydney Opera House, who’s name was Merran. She loved her job, which was good to see, and knew EVERY detail about the opera house. The inside and outside of the place is amazing. We found out about the history, and discovered it is NOT JUST OPERA that they have there. They have rock bands, comedians, pop stars, etc playing there. So don’t be fooled by the name. We were allowed access to sit and watch a rehearsal of one orchestra. I could have fallen asleep it was so soothing.
