Quick facts

Opened in 1973, the Sydney Opera House stages more than 1,600 performances a year, ranging from from opera, ballet, dance to music and comedy shows, in its concert halls and theaters. In May and June, its iconic sails become a dazzling canvas for amazing light shows, such as Vivid Sydney, the world’s largest festival of light, music and ideas.

Each May the Sydney Harbor plays host to Vivid Sydney, a month-long festival dedicated to light, art, and music. Australia does public art right, and it can been seen in all of its cities, but this is a masterpiece. Vivid transforms the city into a gigantic projection screen by using 3-D mapping to cast incredible images across all kinds of buildings, including the Sydney Opera House.

Its unique design made it the most recognizable symbol of Sydney and Australia.
