People around the world are constantly traveling to Sydney just to enjoy the magical view of the city from the shore of Sydney Harbour. What makes Sydney a unique and special place is the combination of skyscrapers and the famous Opera House. Sydney each year surprises with its spectacular lighting installations of the most beautiful landmark Opera House.
Sydney Opera House is an expression of the will and enthusiasm which also are part of the Australian soul. On October 20, 1973 it had been officially launched by the Queen Elizabeth II. Many people each year visit the building of the Opera, which is home to Sydney theaters and Sydney Philharmonic, and became an important tourist attraction, so almost every moment of the day there can be seen foreign tourists trying to photograph this miraculously beautiful building.

Modern construction is one of the architectural wonders of the world and probably one of the most famous buildings of the 20th century. Located on Bennelong Point in Sydney Harbour, close to the Sydney Harbour Bridge, seduces with its design. At thirty year anniversary of the official opening it became a UNESCO World Heritage Site on 28 June 2007. Sydney Opera House hosts more than 1,500 performances a year that sees around 1.2 million people and also in recent years, the Australian government has earmarked 70 million to adapt the building to realize indoor and outdoor art events.

Sydney Symphony Orchestra, the Australian Chamber Orchestra, the Australian Philharmonic Orchestra and Choir have performances in the grand concert hall with 2700 seats. Components of this complex have art space for about 270 people, Opera Theater and mobile arena. Sydney Opera House has a smaller studio, established in cabaret style specially for preparing new modern performances. Series of large concrete “shells” which are parts of a sphere with a radius of 75.2 meters, placed on a large platform makes this place unusual and the most visited.
