Concert Hall, Sydney Opera House

We have been resident at the Sydney Opera House since this magnificent building opened in 1973. Over the decades, we have welcomed some of the greatest names in classical music, with landmark performances that have become part of the popular history of Australian culture.

In July 2022 we will be back beneath the Opera House sails following the historic Concert Hall upgrade – with the full force of a new acoustic experience.

A new experience

Feel the power of music with an enhanced acoustic that will transform the experience of live symphonic music. From moments of peacefulness and quiet to thunderous finales, the renewed Concert Hall experience will be a revelation.

Fresh perspectives

Enjoy the stunning interior design within the soaring architecture, a new elegant passageway and lift, making it easier for you to travel between the Northern and Southern Foyers and access all levels of the Concert Hall, and enjoy improved sightlines thanks to the re-engineered stage.

Looking outside, Sydney is the ever-beautiful backdrop. With the glittering blue harbour to one side and the leafy green Royal Botanic Gardens to the other, there isn’t a more iconic location to play the world’s most moving music.

Here for everyone

As an orchestra here to serve Sydney, we’re pleased that these improvements include additional accessible seating positions and easier independent travel throughout the venue for all of our patrons. If you’d like to find out more, please get in touch with us.

Where to eat

Talk about spoilt for choice. There’s everything from fine dining to bistros and cafés at the Sydney Opera House and Circular Quay precinct.

Within the Opera House, you’ll find the Theatre Bars and Portside. And down on the lower concourse is Opera Bar where you can sip on a cocktail and order a meal while enjoying Sydney’s best view of the harbour.

If you’re after something really special, book a table at Bennelong, one of Australia’s most awarded fine dining restaurants.
