We were lucky to get 2 very good seats for the "Symphonic Insperation" conducted by David Robertson. Very enjoyable music, great ambiance, a once in your lifetime must to visit a concert at Sydney Opera House. We enjoyed ourselves very much.

Karen, the ticketing receptionist, was incredibly rude and downright hostile to deal with. She refused to help us and claimed she couldn't do anything about changing tickets (which we ordered for the 20th, but received confirmation for the 19th September instead) and blamed us for the technical error. However, upon calling the very helpful Admin team, we found out from... More

Just rated as the best orchestra in Australia. I have been listening for many years and have watched the standard steadily improve. At their best they are very good indeed.

Listening to the SSO at the Opera House is always a pleasure. They perform a wide range of pieces, have lovely guests and provide a relaxing atmosphere to enjoy music in

I took my kids to the matinee performance of Pixar in Concert at the Concert Hall Sydney Opera House. It was a very emotional and wonderful experience. I'd go again in a heartbeat. We sat in a Platform Box D overlooking the Orchestra. The kids could see each of the musicians playing which was ideal, although it might have been... More

Until my health gave way, I was a regular subscriber to their concerts. It is, by any standard, a world-class ensemble, with great conductors, inspired programming, and an unbeatable concert hall location. It is one of life's great pleasures to be enthralled by their musicianship.

Anyone who has an interest in listening to the great music composers works should try to get to one of these symphonies to check it out.Our group are converts.Pick any composer and try it out. It only goes for a couple of hours... More

The venue is always busy and the symphony is fantastic. Their online system to book tickets works very well and we have never attended other than a stellar performance.
