Opera Centre Tours in Sydney

Come inside Opera Australia HQ and see the magic behind the scenes with a guided tour of The Opera Centre in Surry Hills for your school group to see how we create an opera.

From the studios upstairs where our singers and musicians rehearse with conductors, directors, language coaches and technical staff to the cavernous workshop where carpenters and props makers build castles out of plywood and trees out of metal, The Opera Centre is a hive of thrilling activity.

Tours take place every weekday, at 10am and 2pm. The minimum number for a tour is 2 and the maximum is 40. One teacher/guardian per 10 students is required for all school groups. At least two weeks' notice is required, so that we can allocate an experienced guide
