Sydney Opera House

Post by Bill » Wed Jul 20, 2016 1:05 pm

Designed by Danish architect Jørn Utzon, this World Heritage-listed building is Australia's most recognisable landmark. Visually referencing the billowing white sails of a seagoing yacht (but described by some local wags as more accurately resembling the sexual congress of turtles), it's a commanding presence on Circular Quay. The complex comprises five performance spaces where dance, concerts, opera and theatre are staged.

In giving the world one of the 20th century’s greatest buildings, Jørn Utzon changed the creative and cultural landscape of Australia forever. Sydney Opera House is committed to continuing the legacy of Utzon’s creative genius by creating, producing and presenting the most acclaimed, imaginative and engaging performing arts experiences from Australia and around the world; onsite, offsite and online. As the creative and cultural flagship of Australia, Sydney Opera House is the place where imagination takes you.

The best way to experience the building is to attend a performance, but you can also take a one-hour guided tour, conducted in a variety of languages. There's also a two-hour 'access all areas' backstage tour, which departs at 7am and includes breakfast in the Green Room.
