Whether you’re a morning person or not, this early morning tour is surely worth your time with an exhilarating experience of the larger-than-life Sydney Opera House from its backstage.

Here is the plan...

A departure in the early hours confirms an uninterrupted and peaceful touring experience. An expert guide takes you through this UNESCO World Heritage-listed building that hosts over 1500 performances annually at its multiple performing arts venues.

Explore the nooks and corners of this world-famous and iconic performance venue. Enjoy undisturbed access to the inner sanctum areas that are otherwise buzzing with performers and technical crews later in the day. Walk through the hallowed theatres, as you’re taken behind the curtains and subsequently on stage. Learn about what goes on backstage, hear a few interesting secrets and insider’s stories and get a perspective on the dramatic and passionate lives of the performers. 

Enjoy plenty of photo opportunities during this tour and let your guide inform you about any photography restricted areas. Conclude this experience with a grand hot breakfast in the Green Room, a place that serves as a private area for the crew and some of the world’s most well-respected artists. If you choose to go on this trip on a Sunday, the breakfast will be arranged at the Opera Kitchen instead.
