Opera House Tour

I will be the first to say it, I am not a huge tour girl when it comes to things that I know I can explore myself. I thought after six weeks of living in Sydney I did not need to take an hour tour of the Opera House, but boy was I wrong! First, I learned that you can do yoga in the mornings on Wednesdays and Fridays in this space pictured above. I went during sunrise and it was beautiful!
It was really interesting to hear about the history of the Opera House, which they mostly talk about who and how it was built, but it is also notable to see different parts of the Opera House that I would not see without the tour.
 It was really cool because I could see the tiles up close and personal and even touch the Opera House roof, itself. One of my favorite experiences though was something that I got to witness by complete chance. In the Concert Room, there was a private elementary school practicing for a concert they had that night for their parents. So, while I was on the tour they practiced and it sounded like the most angelic sound I have ever heard! The room that is strategically built to project voices and satisfy the ear and so it was honeslty so enchanting.
Pictured above is the Opera Room (where we were allowed to take photos) and while I wanted to attend an opera I chose not to. Instead, I saw a play in one of the theatre rooms. I think the tour was for sure worth it to see different parts of the Opera House that are hidden from the outside.
