“Best House on the Best Street”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2012

What else is there to say? I have been here many times: as a small child, a school teen on excursion finally as a professional who had the good fortune actually work here for a day. Each time I come here I am in awe of this beautiful icon. There's never going to be another one quite like it, at least not in the same location! Right on Sydney Harbour, with arguably one of the best views in the world. The Opera House is an amazing place to wander through and even though she is getting on, I still see her as the fabulous new house on the block that dominated our newspaper headlines for weeks after she opened. Take a packed lunch and a blanket, some comfortable walking shoes and a camera. Eat your fare on her generous stone steps while you imagine the pomp and pageant of some of the greats who have graced her halls.

“World class opera”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2012

Two season passes and about 15 operas later I can certainly say that Opera Australia are world class. They never miss a beat.

“Wonderful building.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 May 2012

We go here a lot. It is in such a beautiful setting and the building is so wonderful. You could spend the day just wandering around looking at the harbour, having a coffee or meal at one of the many restaurants and cafes.We saw Madam Butterfly and it was a wonderful opera in a stunning setting.
