What you'll do
The Sydney Opera House invites you and a friend to see a world-class performance from a very special place in the Concert Hall, one not normally open to the public. On arrival, you will be treated to dinner backstage in the Green Room, a lounge and dining area where performers relax before and after a performance. You will then head up to the Lighting Box, high above the Concert Hall auditorium, with its bird’s-eye view of the stage. This is a unique way to experience one of the Opera House’s inspiring performances.
