Il teatro dell'Opera di Sydney (la Sydney Opera House, in inglese) costituisce una delle più significative architetture realizzate nel XX secolo e tale da rappresentare quasi un'icona non solo per la città di Sydney, in cui sorge, quanto per l'Australia stessa.
Il progetto è dell'architetto danese Jørn Utzon, affiancato per i calcoli strutturali dalla società di ingegneria londinese Arup.

Awesome place though packed with tourists and fancy people during daylight hours (there is a restaurant/bar attached that gets lively for lunch and dinner). Even after dark there are plenty of people around and it's very hard to get a good picture of just you and/or the background. Go in the early morning for sunrise and you can get a great picture as long as there aren't too many joggers out. Or go for dinner and drinks to watch the sunset but don't be surprised if you've got a lot of company!

We had wonderful experience just being there. The view is fantastic. The Architecture is marvellous. We spent the evening there just admiring the natural and man made beauty. The shows at the opera are good. I liked the lift we no ceiling in it. The first terrace is worth visiting. The snacks and food items were also good

Half the fun is just walking there. Join the crowds and awe at the architecture of the Opera House and enjoy the Sydney Harbor bridge. The ferry port is nearby so the area is very busy. We were there during Chinese New Year so we also enjoyed extra activities. I recommend that you enjoy it during the day but also at night. There is special light show displayed on the Opera House at dusk and then again at 10pm?. We did not do the tour but heard it was very good.

Really great views. Obviously the Opera House is one of the iconic must see tourist spots when visiting Sydney, the view of the harbour bridge is also quite amazing. Take time to soak in the views, there's plenty of places to eat close by and grab some ice-cream too. I got a ferry out to manly beach, and got some great pictures of the Opera House with he city in the background.

We did a tour in the morning and it was extremely educational. The guides have a microphone that speaks directly into your headset, as to not make too much noise. It was fascinating to learn all the little tidbits about the Opera house. We came back that night for a concert. Amazing!

Excellent experience! This is a must visit place if you are in Sydney. The views are breathtaking. The tour was very nice. The history is explained in the tour and also if you are lucky then you can see various theatres/halls inside. At night we saw a light show which was about 10-20 minutes and was a wonderful experience. There are a lot of restaurants next to opera house which give you excellent views to enjoy over dinner. Highly recommended!

Fantastic building and amazing tour! The Opera House walking tour was outstanding. We were able to see the Playhouse theater, the Drama theater as well as both Opera theaters. The Tour Guide provided extensive background information on the design and building of the Sydney Opera House. The roof design is amazing! In addition, the Opera Bar has the best fish & chips in Sydney as well as wide selection of ICE COLD BEER! Definitely worth the price!

Fantastic. Once in a lifetime experience you can see easily and frequently. Evokes a special set of emotions for my partner and I when visiting. We love it and will return again. Staff in the bar were exceptionally friendly and went over and above for us. Made our night. Great for a whisky rye on a special occasion

Amazing. If you get a chance in your life, you must visit and enjoy this place and you will never disappointed. Great civil work and hats off those who were behind the design. There are lots of restaurants and food choices around the Opera House and good view in most of the restaurants. During the operation time, the bar and restaurants are fully packed and not recommended to go with kids to this crowd.

What a beautiful building both from the inside and outside. I'll start with the outside. The Opera House is an icon of architecture so seeing if for the first time in person was quite exhilarating. We were there are Chinese New Year and caught the split second fireworks behind the opera house too. They have wide open plazas/pathways around so you can capture photos from all angles and enjoy the architecture from every viewpoint. The inside is very minimalist but quite beautiful in its simplicity. I expected the main theater to be quite ornate but it was quite the opposite, SIMPLE! It was magnificent to watch an opera at the Opera House and the simplicity of the decor didn't detract from the opera which was a plus for me. Around the winds of the theater are many floor to ceiling windows to enjoy the view of the harbor from many different views. Go to the back after you enter for a beautiful bar area with tons of windows. Highly recommend visiting! Try to catch a show or opera if you can as well.

This iconic building is a must do when visiting Sydney. We choose the early morning behind the scenes tour. It was so worth every penny. Through a guided tour, our group of 8 explored the Green Room, all 4 halls, went on stage in 2 halls and behind the scenes of 3 halls. Saw the property storage area and a dressing room. We stood in the Orchestra pit in the opera hall. We were awed by the Symphony hall! The tour ended back in the Green Room where we ate a most amazing breakfast (included in the price of the tour.) There were 4 breakfast options from a simple croissant and fruit to a full scrambled egg, bacon and toast meal. The food was excellent. Our guide was amazing! He was very informative and answered all of our questions. In fact, he asked each of us what we were doing next and offered directions and suggestions to help. Strongly recommend the Sydney Opera House and, especially the early morning tour.

We attended a French musical 'Carmen' by Bizet, and the 'Merchant of Venice' in the past. The experience was absolutely fabulous. The acoustics are splendid, so was the lighting. Step out of the hall and you get to soak up the beautiful view of the harbour. It's definitely a must visit place. When I finally got inside my mind was blown. I was in town for a week. There are a few venues beside the largest. The stage and theater was very intimate, not a bad seat in the place although there are only 550 seats. The lighting, acoustics and flow of the small theaters is amazing. As for the building itself, the details are subtle and classy, from the open elevator shafts to the bathroom sink it seems no detail was left without care and consideration. I can't wait to go back to see something else.

What can I say about the Opera House which hasn't already been said. Go late afternoon to see the sunset over the harbour. The most iconic modern building in the world! See a classical concert in the concert hall if you possibly can. Don't bother with seats lower than A Reserve, unless you are reading this after the 2019 refurbishment. The Sydney Symphony Orchestra is one of the world's best full size orchestras. An absolute bargain compared to the New York Phil. The Australian Chamber Orchestra is one of a handful of truly great small classical orchestras in the world. Both are based in the Sydney Opera House Concert Hall. The Opera Theatre is relatively small by world standards, but superb. Operas are much less expensive than in London or New York. The food area, between the Opera House and Sydney Harbour, is noisy, expensive, and worth it!

Been to theatre, opera and orchestras here and absolutely enjoyed every single time. The iconic Opera House lives up to its name and the staff, facilities and location is great. Can get busy when lining up for tickets, so by all means if you can book online, definitely a better alternative. Note that you will have to cloak your bag if it's too big, so stick to the warnings. Seat ushers are great to talk to and make sure you arrive early so that you can snap a few pictures before your show.

Wow, what a magnificent place. It looks just amazing from the outside,dominating the landscape when you look at it from afar but wow, getting up close and personal and touching it was something else. Lots of photo opportunities in and around the Opera House and the view of the harbour and the Harbour Bridge from the grounds of the Opera House are magnificent and not to be missed. Going on a tour inside the building then took the whole experience to another level altogether. This is a fully functional performance centre and we were lucky to be able to see all of the performance spaces during the tour. Do yourself a favour, go visit and take a tour. I'm not stopping there as I have tickets to an actual performance in the Opera House can't wait for that. This is a must do when you are in Sydney!

I was willing to stay here for as long as I can. Being here was one of my dreams. Watching the structure from the ferry, seeing I'm going to be there soon, made me feel so so good. Loved the place as well. Spending an evening with some friends or loved ones, and having some quality time, wouldn't disappoint you at all. Plus, VividSydney festival is on for next couple of weeks or some more days. It should be very very Good!

The train stop at Circular Quay. Stepping off the train the first thing came into my eyes was the astonishing view outside the window. It's makes me feel like I'm a kid first time visiting Jurassic World. And then when you step out of the station, the wind that comes the sea. The cold of Australia winter. The sound of the vehicles and people talking. And also the smell that comes from the restaurant. There is no word to describe this place..it's just perfect. When the sun goes out and the lights come out, its one of the most beautiful scene I've ever seen

Wonderful place to attend concerts. Being directly on the Sydney Harbour of course adds to the experience. You can get here two ways. Either drive or take the hydrofoil which is a pleasant boat ride and I would suggest it to anyone who visits. Unlike many places here in the states Australians are extremely friendly and helpful. If you ever need directions they will always steer you the right way (no pun intended). Sydney is beautiful with so much to offer. The acoustics of the Opera House makes it so regardless of wherever you're sitting it will sound like you're sitting in the front row directly in front of the entertainers so no worries of not being able to hear the concert as you always will. Even if you sit directly in the back you will enjoy the experience as if you were sitting directly up front.

I highly recommend taking the guided tour. They give great information and you get an in-depth view of all the different areas of the Opera house. Our tour guide was awesome! This building is a modern marvel! The views from around the area were gorgeous. I would love to go back and watch a show there.
Suyono Kurniawan | ago 1, 2018
One of the city landmark. Of course it's a must visit site if we visit Sydney. For some events, need to arrange an early booking. Taking pictures at surrounding area has breathtaking views. Recommended to take memorable pictures here. Several nice cafes on the lower ground on the way to Opera House. Seating with a fantastic view not only to Opera House but also the Harbour Bridge. Walking or jogging from Circular Quay to Opera House is an interesting activity.

You always hear so much about it and I really wondered if it was all it claimed to be and I was in awe. Inside it was stunning! Overlooking the water in some parts and the beautiful architecture in other areas. On top of that the concerts are beautiful and the 'stadiums' are stunning. It was such a privilege to be able to discover this Australian icon further. And as a side note; the bathrooms were immaculate, Shelly nice and were just presented well. :) Incredible place!

Iconic architecture! Well deserved it's fame and popularity! It can get extremely crowded, especially during Vivid. To be honest, I didn't really like this year's (2018) compositions for Vivid. There were much more interesting works in previous years. I hope they'll make it better in future.
