“A Supeb Sydney Icon”
Reviewed December 1, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

I have been a subscriber to the Opera for many years. Every visit to the Opera house a wonderful experience. The smaller venues for more intimate performances give the venue an added vitality. Access by car or public transport is very easy.

“A must go”
Reviewed December 1, 2013

I went to just for laughs, I took my husband who had never been inside the opera house before and he really like the set up. Will be going back again next year.

“Every show is worth the ticket”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

I have never been disappointed with any Opera Australia production. Their staging and costuming are always imaginative and super effective. For those not into classic Operas the AO have started to incorporate more lighter fare. Last year (and this) twas South Pacific. In 2014 it will be the King & I.

The performance of The Pearl Fishers was absolutely fantastic. It was grand opera at its best. The best I have seen!

“What a view”
Reviewed November 24, 2013

After looking around the Opera House went to the Opera House bar which was outside and on the waters edge of the harbour,a great place to stop and have a drink as you look out across the harbour and look at the Harbour Bridge,boats and of course the Opera House.The beer was ok but priced a bit more than the average,but hey,what a view.
