Opera House Guided Tours
When you join a tour of the Sydney Opera House, you will do more that
just look at this remarkable building, you will learn the history behind
the concept, how the project was financed and just what the whole scheme
means to everyday Australians.
There are 2 separate tours that you can take.
The most popular Opera
House tour, and the least expensive, is the guided walking tour where
you are taken through the building, seeing each of the separate theatres
for opera, drama, ballet and the main
Concert Hall which is a colossal auditorium on a grand scale.
The second of the fabulous tours is what is called the backstage tour.
This is a more in depth study and takes you into the myriad working
behind theatre. You will walk into the stars dressing rooms, see the
sets and lighting and actually get to walk on stage.
The Backstage tour
includes breakfast in the Green Room and a chance to meet the stars
and stage hands.
With each tour your guide will tell you interesting facts and little
known stories of this mighty building, with a few tidbits of gossip
and some hilarious anecdotes that will certainly hold your attention.
Then there are the views, the spectacular position of the Opera House
is certainly in a prime location that is simply breathtaking.
