The icon of Sydney is a must visit even for those who do not enjoy opera all that much. The expressionist building was designed by Jørn Utzon from Denmark in the 1950s and this innovative design of his changed the course of modern architecture. Since 2007, the building is also listed on UNESCO World Heritage List.
The Opera House does not consist of only one grand stage. There are several individual venues located inside: the Concert Hall, the Joan Sutherland Theatre, the Drama Theatre, the Playhouse, the Studio, the Utzon Room, the Recording Studio and the Forecourt.
If you wish to visit the Opera House, you can either buy tickets for a specific performance or you can take part in the daily tours which are organised by the Opera House. The various tours (e.g. tours in languages other than English or children-friendly tours) are listed on the official website. Booking the tour in advance is highly recommended.
