Escape ordinary under the sails of the Sydney Opera House

Opera is the ultimate escape: to a world of heroes, lovers and villains. A world of glamour and heartbreak. A world of breathtaking stories and even more breathtaking music.

The Sydney Opera House is not just the most famous building of the 20th century, but Sydney’s home of opera.

Climb the Monumental Steps as the sun sets.

Raise a glass in the panoramic glass foyer overlooking the harbour.

Take your seat in the historic Joan Sutherland Theatre, and get ready for an unforgettable experience.
