Scenic & aural delight

Beautiful building & Sutherland Hall. Too bad we couldn't see the other hall too. Gounod's Faust was an excellent performance.

Such an exciting evening, a highlight in our month of travel in Australia. Faust was excellent- unique - not just singing but classical ballet, modern dance , extraordinary choreography!
A night at the opera

The venue is an absolute must just to visit for it’s iconic design, thus making it extra special when performances are on. As for the opera itself a fantastic performance and production. Even if you are not a complete opera buff like me it is well worth a visit
Stunning performance of a well-loved opera.
Leonie_M, Mar 2020
The performances and music were exceptional. We opted for "best available" tickets and were very impressed by the ones we received, given that it was a full house and we booked the morning of the opera. The costumes and sets were well done, and the lead male was exceptional. And, of course, the Opera House acoustics were superb.
Painless way to experience opera in the Sydney Opera House.
STASSA_P, Feb 2020
A little disappointed that there were only four performers, but they were wonderful. But you could def. tell it was just a moneymaker for them for those just off the cruise ship. ACOUSTICS WERE INCREDIBLE!

Impressive acoustics. We could hear every note from each singer. The emcee was eloquent and entertaining with his amusing jokes.
Taste of opers

Don Giovanni at the Sydney Opera House was incredible.
Daniel_T, Feb 2020
Amazing. The theater is iconic. The opera was superb. It was such a treat. Masterful singing, well directed and just staged so well. Not a bad seat in the house, either.
Enjoyable evening at the iconic Sydney Opera House
LuluBelle1201, Nov 2019
Our tickets were waiting for us at the ticket counter inside the Opera House. Everything went smoothly. It's a very nice facility and we enjoyed the quality performance that evening. And we checked another item off our Bucket List! We were able to call for an Uber ride just a short distance out front of the opera house.
Perfect ending

John I, Mar 2018
I had booked to see Carmen at the Sydney Opera house together with friends. I paid a fortune for the tickets but as it was the other side of the world thought it would be worth it. On collection of the tickets I was initially told they had no booking but then they found them, only it wasn't for Carmen but The Nose. All my emails from Viator just said 4 adults for Sydney Opera. I had to call to check that the seats were together as that wasn't stated. I booked to see Carmen but instead got to see the biggest load of rubbish I have ever seen OK some of the dancing was good but there was just to virtuosity in the singing. ULTRA disappointed and feel robbed. I would have walked out if I'd been on my own.

Kathleen_M, Feb 2018
Enjoyed the opera very much. Getting the tickets in exchange for the voucher went smoothly except that there was only one box office agent working when the large group of 50 or so of our cruise mates all arrived together and so we had quite a wait until other box office staff arrived - then it went very quickly. Seats were in the premium quality range that we had requested and well located in the theatre.
