Your tour of the Sydney Opera House gives you an insider's perspective on one of the world’s most famous performance venues, where more than 1,500 concerts, ballets, musicals and plays are staged every year. Check out areas that are off-limits to the general public, learn about the distinctive exterior design made up of ‘shell’ tiles, and hear about opera house’s Danish architect, including his inspiration and building challenges. Walk through the elegant foyers, visit one of the largest pillar-free chambers in the world, sit down in a custom-made white birch chair and look up at the vaulted ceiling.
Explore in depth during your 1-hour tour with a knowledgeable guide, who shares fun facts about the opera house’s history, architecture and the thousands of performances that have taken place there since it opened in 1973.
