We booked a sampler opera concert, it was perfect. We had fizz to start with and then enjoyed the opera. Highly recommend it!

This is such an iconic building from a distance but close up the approach was a bit like a building site with industrial fencing near the entrance. The inside was well designed and comfortable. We went for the experience but the opera itself was unimpressive ( Otello) but that was possibly due to our jet lag on our first night... More

Inspiring building well worth visiting - do an inside tour if you can (fee payable for this), also any performance has a special feel as a result of the location

Sydney and its harbour as seen from the Opera House is nothing short of world class. Leaves new York for dead. The only harbour and city that comes near Sydney is Istanbul.
