Tour description provided by Viator

Go behind the scenes of the iconic Sydney Opera House on a backstage tour of one of the world's most famous performing arts centers! You'll gain exclusive access to areas of the Sydney Opera House that are normally reserved for staff and performers, including the stage and dressing rooms, while hearing from your expert guide about the real-life dramas that go on behind the curtain. To top off your morning, enjoy a full Australian breakfast in the Green Room. Small-group tour limited to 10 people ensures a more personalized experience.

Meet your small-group tour guide early in the morning to ensure that you can see the inner sanctum areas; access is restricted later in the day. Get a peek into the goings on backstage as you check out rehearsal space and dressing rooms. You may even catch a glimpse of actors, dancers or musicians as they warm up!

Then, walk onstage where countless superstars have performed, taking in the Sydney Opera House from their perspective. You may also want to step onto the conductor's podium and view the orchestra section.

Throughout the morning, your knowledgeable guide shares industry secrets and insider stories about life backstage, as well as the history of the UNESCO World Heritage-listed building.

After touring the backstage, tuck into a full continental breakfast served in the Green Room — the exclusive domain of performers and staff. Ask further questions and hear more stories as you enjoy a hearty meal. Choose from several hot and cold dishes with options for different dietary needs.

Performing arts fans of all stripes will relish the chance to experience the inner workings of this famous performing arts center!
