The Sydney Opera House building is so impressive that a walking tour in non-performance hours can excite as much as the live performances it hosts.
This collection shows some highlights of such a tour. We see the magnificent setting on the shores of Sydney harbour, the Sydney Harbour Bridge sharing the stage, the warmth of the concert hall, the backstage ancilliary equipment, and the personalities that powered its design projected onto the raw concrete surfaces.
