Sydney Opera House Backstage Tour

Sydney, New South Wales, Australia

The Sydney Opera House Backstage Tour is the best way to get to know one of the world’s most iconic buildings. When you take the guided tour, you get exclusive access to areas of the building that are normally restricted to staff. The backstage tour takes around two hours and takes you through such areas of the theatre as the orchestra pit, onto the stage and through the dressing rooms where thousands of world class performers have got ready for their performances over the years. You get to hear all kinds of anecdotes from the guide about the triumphant performances, the gossip and secrets that have occurred here behind the stage curtains. It starts at 7am to ensure that you have access to all the different areas of the opera house no matter what is going on there at the time. After having discovered the magical elements of this beautiful theatre and having strutted the stage boards where legends such as Rudolph Nureyev and Dame Joan Sutherland have performed, you return to the green room for a breakfast with your guide. Anyone interested in live performances and the theatre will find this tour very interesting. It is best to book in advance as this is a very popular tour.
