Spectacular from a distance. Even better up close. Tour the Sydney Opera House, go backstage, or for a significant special occasion, there is a Taste of Opera, an exclusive opera recital with the opportunity to meet the singer and pianist, adding an Australian-inspired dining experience to make the most of your visit to the Sydney Opera House. Or take a live, guided digital tour in English or Mandarin!
The Sydney Opera House is Australia’s most-recognised cultural institution and a celebrated community meeting place. It is inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List as a masterpiece of human creative genius and a world-class performing arts centre.
The local Gadigal people knew the land on which the Opera House stands as Tubowgule, a reference to the creative energy liberated here. For thousands of years it has been a gathering place for storytelling, culture and celebration. We are committed to continuing that tradition.
The Opera House exists because a few brave people dared to think differently. They made the impossible, possible. We stand as a proud testament to the power of dreaming in public. To the transformative potential of art and ideas. We expand horizons, shift perspectives and stir emotions.
