One of the most famous buildings in the world, UNESCO World Heritage, an iconic example of architecture...simply amazing...
The Sydney Opera House, Sydney Opera House), located in the north of Sydney, Sydney is a landmark buildings, by the Danish architect, black pine (Jorn Utzon) design, a shell-shaped roof is combined with the theatre and hall room below water complex. The interior of the opera house is modeled after mayan culture and the Aztec temple. Construction of the building began in March 1959 and was completed on October 20, 1973. It took 14 years. The Sydney opera house is an Australian landmark and one of the most distinctive buildings of the 20th century. It was named UNESCO world heritage site in 2007.
This is Sydney's landmark building, famous for its shell-shaped roof. It is said that the outside facade of the roof is tiles imported from Italy to prevent seabirds from staying on it and bird droppings from eroding the walls. Over the years, the whole outside and inside should remain basically intact. This building is a nightmare for the builders, because he has no beams, so its whole shell-like roof is supported by steel beams inside. When it was built, the budget broke through a lot, and the architect could not bear the pressure to leave Australia and never came back. The whole building was so magnificent that he could feel his magnificent posture whether standing in Sydney Bay or at the foot of the Opera House. Looking at the bridge and the whole Sydney Bay from here is also very beautiful. It has time to walk around.
Sydney and Australia as a whole, even if everyone gives a star, no one should miss it. I concluded that there are three unnecessaries: the location is just east of the ring pier, which is impossible for tourists to miss. So you don't have to go out of your way because you can't escape it. You don't have to take a Gulf cruise to see it at sea when you go to Manley or Port Valentine's. It's much more beautiful than it is on land. Internal visits cost money, not to catch up with what you want, and the interior is not very large, the open area is limited, fair-faced concrete can not see how wonderful, for the general visitors will not feel good, at least much worse than the Tiananmen National Theatre interior, after all, is not a product of an era. So you don't have to visit the interior, but if you have your favorite performance, it would be great to see it in the evening. In addition, there is a large line of restaurants on the west coast of the theatre, which are more expensive than two blocks away. They can eat and drink with the sea breeze at the foot of the theatre. Tourists often shuttle and seagulls wait for the opportunity to steal.
The opera house is wonderful! If you come, you must go inside the opera house. We're booked for a small Chinese tour. Maybe because of the early attendance, there are only five tourists in all. The tour guide gave a very careful account of the architectural history of the opera house and introduced the ingenuity of the whole building at close range. We also took us inside the three theatres to visit, because there were rehearsals on the same day that were not allowed to take pictures, but from the seats, stage design, facilities and other aspects can see full sincerity. It happened that a group of children from the choir came to the theatre to visit. After their visit, they sat in the theatre and sang a wonderful chorus of children's voices. We happened to hear a live chorus on the spot. It's a great experience for Australian little pot friends. On the shore of the opera house, there is a little seal that has been standing here for a long time in the sun. Many tourists crouched on the shore and were crazy to see him sell. It's really cute!
Sydney Opera House is located in Bennelong Point, Cape Benilong of Sydney Harbour. This comprehensive art center is considered as a typical giant sculpture in the history of modern architecture. It is one of the most distinctive buildings in the 20th century and a landmark building of Sydney City. The theatre was designed by Danish designer Jon Usson J&_8; RN Utzon. Construction began in 1959 and the Grand Theater was officially completed in 1973. On June 28, 2007, the building was awarded World Cultural Heritage by UNESCO. The Opera House looks like three groups of huge shells, standing on the base of reinforced concrete structure. The whole building covers an area of 1.84 hectares, 183 meters long, 118 meters wide and 67 meters high, equivalent to the height of 20 stories. The total cost of the opera house project is estimated at A$70 million. Construction started in 1959 and is expected to be completed in 1963. As a result, the total project is delayed by 10 years. It takes 14 years from construction to completion, and the final cost is US$120 million. In the concert hall of the Opera House, I enjoyed the last night of the Proms concert dedicated by the Sydney Symphony Orchestra. I ordered two tickets in advance on the website of the Opera House. The tickets were very tense. The seats were separated. No matter what, if he could come to Sydney for the first time, he would enter the Opera House to enjoy the last night of the Proms dedicated by the Sydney Symphony Orchestra. The concert is already very good. The Sydney Opera House's tickets are purchased online at the AUD8.50 handling fee/order. Without pre-ordering, there will surely be no tickets at that time. But I didn't know until I arrived at the opera house that even if you went to the theatre to buy tickets, you would have to charge AUD5.00 handling fee / bill.

Arriving at the hotel near noon, put your luggage away and go out for a walk. The Opera House and the Sydney Bridge are in front of you after five minutes'walk. Wechat's circle of friends is brushed by various domestic hazes, more lamenting the environmental quality here, the sky is high and cloudy, the air is clear, feel the skin in the sun for a little while pain. The opera house is like a sailing boat standing against the wind, the blue sea and sky set off her elegant white, and the black steel bridge is like a postcard that never fades with its broad dignity.
The Sydney Opera House looks like a white sail going to sea on the wind, which is interesting to the surrounding scenery. The Sydney Opera House was conceived and constructed in the 1950s. Since 1955, it has solicited design works from all over the world. By 1956, 233 works of Sydney Opera House from 32 countries had been selected. Later, Danish architect Jon & 183 and Wu Chong's design screen sparrow were selected. It took 16 years and cost 12 million Australian dollars to complete the construction. In order to raise funds, the Australian government also raised funds. The Sydney Opera House Lottery was issued in 1959. About 3,000 performances are held at the Sydney Opera House each year, and about 2 million people attend the event. It is one of the largest performing arts centers in the world. The white roof of the Opera House is made up of more than one million Swedish pottery tiles, which have been specially treated, so it is not afraid of the sea breeze. Under the roof are the concert Hall and Opera Theater, the two major performing venues of the Sydney Opera House. The concert hall is the largest Hall of the Sydney Opera House. It can accommodate 2679 audiences. It is usually used for performing symphony, chamber music, opera, dance, chorus, pop music, jazz and other performances. The most special feature of this concert hall is the Grand Organ, designed and constructed by Australian artist Ronald Sharp, which is known as the world's largest mechanical tracker action organ. It consists of 10,500 wind pipes. In addition, the whole concert hall is made of Australian timber, faithfully presenting its own style.
Sydney's winter is really frozen acridine, Vivid Sydney Festival, I'm in the crowd like everyone, in the face of the cold wind desperately photographed! The sea breeze blew on the boat for an hour, but it was worth it to get close to the beautiful bridge and the Sydney Opera House. If you don't want to be crowded and want to see the bridge and the opera house in close proximity, you can choose a cruise boat like me for an hour. If you want to relax and sit and enjoy the atmosphere like that and you don't want to be hungry, you must definitely take part in a cruise boat with dinner! Of course! You can also choose other ways to participate in Vivid Sydney, such as climbing bridges, dining in the Sydney Tower, and the Vivid experience of Taronga Zoo, which you joined this year, are all good ways to do it.
