The Sydney Opera House is a celebrated work of architectural genius. It was inaugurated in 1973 by Queen Elizabeth II, and visitors have long marveled at the interlocking shell structures that comprise its vast exterior. These magnificent structures rise above a series of stepped terraces.
Visitors can stroll along the terraces before enjoying a performance at one of the Opera House’s two performance halls. The Opera House also offers a breathtaking view of the Sydney Harbor. If you visit the Opera House, take advantage of the guided tours; you’ll learn about its architect, John Ultzon, and the 3,000 events that take place there every year.
Its first performance was a production of War and Peace by the Australian Opera. Since then, the famed Sydney Opera House has come to symbolize Sydney and Australia itself. In 2005, the structure was included on the National Heritage List.
