THE OPERA (THE EIGHTH WONDER)

Sydney Opera House — The Opera has fourteen scenes, set everywhere from Mexico to Denmark to the Royal Yacht to a Sydney backyard BBQ. Based on the true story, rarely has an opera plot had so many twists and turns, charting the dramatic story of the creation of the world’s most famous building and the coming of age of Australia.

Platforms will glide across the steps, delivering the fast-paced action. Giant screens will unfurl to display historic photos, surprising those too young to remember when Bennelong Point was a tram depot and building site. Giant glowing balls of paper, projections and lighting effects will complete the son et lumière spectacle.
