Sydney Opera House Official Souvenir Guide
Sydney Opera House is one of the most recognisable buildings in the world, offering unmissable art and incredible experiences in a setting like no place on earth. Situated on Sydney Harbour on Bennelong Point, it is Australia’s premier tourist attraction and a world-class performing arts centre. This souvenir guide traces the history of this extraordinary building – one that is synonymous with inspiration and imagination – through a beautifully realised combination of photography, text and quotes.
The book takes readers through the story of Bennelong Point from its history as a place of importance to First Nations peoples through to the modern day. It details the story of Sydney Opera House’s inception, the genius of its construction through to the controversy of Jørn Utzon’s resignation from the project. It also pays homage to the significant contribution of Peter Hall, as well as detailing its modern day use and renewal for future generations.
