After making your own way to the Sydney Opera House, your symphony evening begins with a fascinating one-hour tour of the celebrated performing arts center.
Follow your expert guide on a walking tour of approximately one hour. Your guide shares fascinating details about the architecture, artists and history of the opera house and gives you access to parts of the building that are normally off-limits. In a venue that hosts more than 1,500 live performances per year, there are sure to be stories around every corner.
After your tour, walk just a few minutes to enjoy a three course pre-theater dinner at Aria Restaurant or step inside the Sydney Opera House and enjoy a 3-course dinner at Bennelong Restaurant (depending on which option you choose). If you've chosen the 3-tiered tasting plate to share, sit back and take in the unobstructed views of Sydney Harbour at Portside Sydney. A performance by the Sydney Symphony Orchestra will complete your Red Carpet experience.
At the end of your meal, simply stroll back to the Opera House to watch the Sydney Symphony take the stage. Your dinner and symphony package includes a ticket for the show. The Sydney Symphony is known to select pieces that range from well-loved orchestra classics to innovative contemporary works. This exquisite night with the Sydney Symphony at the Sydney Opera House promises to be one of the highlights of a trip to Australia (details under Itinerary below).
Please note: The Sydney Opera House and Sydney Symphony Dinner Package often sells out weeks in advance. Book now to avoid disappointment.
