Sydney Opera House


Sydney Opera House--Up Close and Personal

It is probably one of the most recognizable builidings in the the world and I sure we’ve all see a zillion pictures of it.  The Sydney Opera House design was awarded to Jorn Utzon from Denmark in 1957.  It was not completed until 1973.

Today, I had to priviledge to actually go inside the Opera House and see a performance.  It was called Le Grand Cirque-Adrenaline and it was staged in the main concert hall.

The show was very exciting and it left me with sweaty palms and I often had to look away.  But for me the real show was just sitting in that wonderful chamber and looking around.  I didn’t take any pictures inside the concert hall itself, I just didn’t see how I could get a good angle to capture it.  but I did take a few snapshots of the public lobbies and halls
