If you want to really understand the opera house, go on one of the guided tours; they're well worth it! While on the tour, we got to see one of the orchestras do a dress rehearsal, which was really awesome.

This was my 2nd visit to the Sydney Opera House. The first time, I just walked outside and took photos of the surroundings so didn't really feel impressed.
This time around I found out there was a 1hr tour (available in a few languages). The tour was very informative. It really made a difference and made me appreciate the Opera House a lot more. Plus you also get to buy show tickets at a discount if you've gone on the opera house tour.

We loved the tour as you get to learn and see more of the Opera house than if you just went for a performance. In fact, having learnt about how things work behind the scenes, we are now looking to go watch an opera there.

I spent $100 on a guided tour for our family & it was 1 hour I will never get back. You can't take any pictures inside so you should save your money. The guide was boring & tried so hard to be funny it was pathetic. Not impressed at all.

So everyone has seen pictures, but seeing it person is still fantastic. Went for a piano concerto. Have never seen an orchestra with seating behind and to the sides. Interesting. We sat in the traditional front orchestra seats. Reasonable prices If you are visiting Australia, it just makes all the more special to actually attend a performance.
