A great venue & wonderful facilities

We attended the closing night of the opera Carmen and thoroughly enjoyed the performance. Neither of us are really opera fans but seeing Carmen was excellent. We did know some of the music, which helped. The acoustics in the theatre are amazing! My only "complaint" was not being able to book specific seats when reserving in Nov/17. As a result our seats were on the very edge where the views from the overhanging balconies & speakers was somewhat restricted. It would have been nice to have an option of where we sat.

The performance matched the grandeur of the building

After our tour of the opera building earlier in the day, it was exciting to see the gorgeous red seats filled and the stage...well, the scenery and costumes were incredible. It was disappointing, however, to learn, on the tour, that it entitled us to a $37 discount on opera tickets. Had we only known!

Nous avons tout d'abord apprécié le sérieux de l'organisme de réservation qui a tout fait pour résoudre le problème auquel nous avons été confrontés. L'opéra de Sydney est magnifique. On ne peut passer quelques jours à Sydney sans aller assister à un spectacle dans ce lieu. Et enfin, le spectacle lui-même (opéra "La Bohème") , qui nous a scotchés sur nos fauteuils.
