This venue is soooooo beautiful. It is obvious why it is world acclaimed. We attended a weeknight performance of La Traviata, our first opera. We had the least expensive of the available tickets and had clear, unobstructed views of the stage and cast. The sets, the costumes, the vocals, the acoustics, everything was top notch. Will we see another opera performance elsewhere, don't know but we certainly treasured the experience. Disappointed that so many in the audience were dressed down , wearing casual clothes. Feels disrespectful to the venue and the cast but this observation is one that could be made anywhere. I regret that we did not take the tour others have mentioned but we had such a jam packed schedule for Sydney that we had no extra time. Having read those reviews, I would say, do both. Attend a performance while also fitting in the tour.

Interesting insight into the less seen areas of the Opera House, I think the experience is subject to the timing of the tour in relation to what productions are underway. At this time of year it was between Opera and Ballet seasons so no costumes or staging to be seen. A bit over priced.

An iconic place to visit. The tour gives you insights and if you then decide to go for a concert or event, the ticket prices of the tour is knocked off. A must see/do

A must do when you arrive in Sydney. We took the one hour walking tour by Kat who was just fabulous. Getting to hear about the history of this remarkable facility and see it up close and personal was very entertaining.

Took the 1 hr tour of the opera house. It was very interesting to learn the history and enjoyed the fact that they broke up the story into sections over the tour - was easier to digest. So glad we got to see the various theatres. It’s a beautiful structure. When it was over we sat outside for quite a while to soak it all in. If you are there at dusk, do not miss the light show on the east side of the building.
