Come on in to the Sydney Opera House: Stories from the Concert Hall


Hi, my name is Lani and
I am a tour guide here at the Sydney Opera House and right now we are standing
inside the Concert Hall. This is home to the
Sydney Symphony Orchestra and the Australian
Chamber Orchestra and was designed just
with that in mind. This space is about
acoustic symphonic music but the story doesn’t end there. We also have a whole host of contemporary performers
come and use this space. People from Michael Buble
and Elton John right through to Bon Iver, Kanye
West, Jay Z, all come here and perform inside
the Concert Hall. But interestingly enough,
we also have a whole host of non-musical performers
come and use this space. We’ve had people like Nigella
Lawson, the British chef. We’ve had boxing matches and
sumo wrestling on that stage and in 1980, Arnold
Schwarzenegger himself came and won his final Mr.
Olympia title right down there on that stage.
