The Sydney Opera House is a multi-venue performing arts centre at Sydney Harbour in Sydney, Australia. It is one of the most famous and distinctive buildings of the 20th century.

Designed by Danish architect Jørn Utzon and completed by an Australian architectural team headed by Peter Hall, the building was formally opened on 20 October 1973. On 28 June 2007, the Sydney Opera House became a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The Opera House is home to 1600 performances each year including ballet, opera, theatre, dance, music, comedy, kids shows, talks and more.

The building and its surrounds occupy the whole of Bennelong Point on Sydney Harbour, between Sydney Cove and Farm Cove, adjacent to the Sydney central business district and the Royal Botanic Gardens, and close by the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
