Dress code for Sydney Opera House

I'm going a performance of My Fair Lady at the Opera House when I'm in Sydney. What's the dress code? I don't plan on bringing many "nicer" clothes on this trip, but I want to make sure I have something acceptable to wear. Would jeans and a nicer top & shoes suffice, or do I need something nicer? (I'm a female, if this makes any difference)

Thanks!

I'd draw the line at a cozzie and thongs, but you can wear more or less what you want on the night. You'll see everything from jeans and t-shirts to evening dress and pearls. Whatever you're comfortable in.

Jeans and a nicer top & shoes would be perfect.

Thanks for the help guys! Glad to hear jeans will work, I don't think an evening dress would look too good after spending time squished up in my backpack.

i always think a pair of black pants (slacks) can never go astray when travelling - can dress them up or down. but as others have said - mostly anything goes.
