THE SYDNEY OPERA HOUSE TOUR -
CELEBRATING VIVID LIVE
(Two tours: 5:30PM and 6:00PM)
Every year you can see the Sydney Opera House flare up in a spectacular 3D display of colour and light for the Vivid Sydney Festival celebrations. Now it’s your turn to be right in the middle of the action.
On a Sydney Opera House Tour - Celebrating Vivid LIVE, your nightly one-hour adventure into the heart of Australia's iconic building, begins with an exclusive Vivid LIVE show reel that will immerse you in the history and background of this phenomenally popular event. You’re then invited on a special guided tour of the theatres, foyers and live music venues that make up the Vivid LIVE music program.
You’ll run your hands over the world-famous shell tiles, take a seat in the elegant custom-made white birch timber chairs and marvel at the vaulted ceilings of one of the biggest pillar-free chambers in the world. Once you’ve visited areas off limits to the general public and captured photographs from rare vantage points inside the majestic Sydney Opera House, you’ll realise that from the outside you’re only getting half the story.
THE BACKSTAGE TOUR - CELEBRATING
(One 2 Hour tour: 5:45 includes Dinner in the Green Room).
To celebrate Vivid Sydney Festival, we are offering you the rare opportunity to take the VIP backstage experience in intimate groups on The Backstage Tour - Celebrating Vivid LIVE.
Our tour guides will lead you through the Opera House hallowed theatres and behind the curtains to step foot on stage and, for the very first time, see the brand new recording studio and scenery dock. You might even catch the hard-working crew in action as they set up for a Vivid LIVE musical performance or if you're lucky - catch a glimpse of the artists in the middle of warm-up and rehearsal. You'll then wonder through the exclusive domain of the staff and performers who call this remarkable building home, where you could rub shoulders with one of the stars relaxing in the Green Room.
Once you've uncovered just a few of the mysteries of the backstage world and had your fill of insider secrets, you'll enjoy a full continental breakfast or dinner and wine in The Green Room where you may be lucky enough to spot a star relaxing before their performance. It really doesn’t get more special than that.
