Setting Sail (Architecturally) at the Sydney Opera House
The renowned Sydney Opera House, designed by Danish architect Jørn Utzon and completed in 1973, is a building that you must see in its natural environment to fully appreciate its brilliance. Wander around the public plaza and get ever changing views of the soaring white sail-like domes. Sun sparkles off the white tiles and reveals a subtle texture and pattern to the seemingly uniform curves. Pass under the domes into the theaters and be awed again by the world-class performances, covering opera, jazz, classical music, and more. Architectural tours are also offered, bringing you backstage and sharing stories of the design process. Once you reluctantly drag yourself away from this architectural wonder, take the time to walk around the bay to get a last glimpse of the building serenely resting in the midst of the gorgeous surrounding scenery.
