Its worth seeing... We took a full guided tour of the opera house. The tour was informative & our guide highlighted the difficulties faced during the construction of this monument. Its a nice place to get yourself photographed...

A brilliant concert experience hearing my all time favourite Beatles album performed by my kids' generation of superbly talented musicians! George Harrison must have been rocking in his grave at the electric guitar work of Chris Cheney. Ringo would have been mildly amused that they used two sets of drums. Paul McCartney would surely approve of the beautiful ballads that Josh Pyke was just right to present. And John Lennon would have been pissing himself at the crazy antics of Phil Jamieson & Tim Rodgers! Plus, I've had an additional week of enjoying a loop of these great songs going thru' my brain...the best ear-worm ever!

You must go to see the Sydney Opera House, if only to see it from the outside. It is an impressive building to witness. You can take a nice walk through the Botanical Gardens to get to the opera house. There are also great views from the Harbour Bridge. I would suggest taking the Sydney Opera House Tour. I learned many interesting details about the history, architecture uses and politics of the building of the opera house. It is also fun to get a drink at the Opera House Bar in the evening an take in the views at night. Of course, if you enjoy the opera, you should purchase tickets for a performance. With over 1000 shows annually you are bound to find one you will like.

We saw our first opera and it was excellent. It was great to sit, watch and listen to amazing talented people. The acoustics were spot on. There were subtitles at the very top of the stage, so I would recommend you sit on the top level if you need to use this.
