What You Can Expect

Opera Performance at the Sydney Opera House

Opera Performance at the Sydney Opera House

Once you have selected your choice of performance at the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Sydney Opera House, simply make your own way to the legendary performing arts venue for a quintessential Sydney experience.

Emerging stars join longtime favorites for Opera Australia's 2017 opera season performances, which take place in the Joan Sutherland Theatre (formerly the Opera Theatre), the second largest concert hall in the Sydney Opera House at 1,507 seats. Operas are performed in their original languages (mostly Italian), with subtitles in English projected on a screen above the stage.

To celebrate the 60th anniversary of Opera Australia and the original Broadway performance of My Fair Lady, Dame Julie Andrews directs a special production of My Fair Lady with performances from September to November 2016. If your plans take you to Sydney then, snap up a ticket for this exclusive event.

Bars inside the Sydney Opera House open one hour prior to performance time — arrive early to enjoy a pre-theater drink (own expense) and admire sweeping views of Sydney Harbour and the Harbour Bridge.

See the Itinerary section below for details about the 2016 and 2017 season.

I bought the cheap seats, but they put us in the second row off-center. No one in front of us. The opera was spectacular from that vantage. Easy purchase. Very satisfied.

The concert at the Opera House was the highlight of our trip to Sydney. It was good to be able to book tickets in advance through Viator because, with our living in Britain , we would have found it difficult to buy them from here.

We absolutely loved it! I wish we would have been able to see a full performance opera but the Classical hits we saw were amazing and so fun to be able to see it in the famous Sydney Opera House. We sat up in the balcony and I don't think there is a bad seat in the house. Just so people know the ticket office is kind of in the middle of the building so you need to go up quite a few stairs. I did find it a little odd that they were still selling drinks to people 5 minutes before the performance began so we were quite late starting with people coming in late. But this doesn't change my view on the whole experience. Unforgettable!

The performance of My Fair Lady at the Sydney Opera House was fabulous! The seats were quite close to the stage and were nicely centered in that row. We could see and hear the performance very well. It was definitely one of the highlights of the trip to Australia and New Zealand. Some of my fellow travelers bought tickets to the same performance and not only paid more for their seats than we did but the seats were not as good as ours. Well done Viator!
