To coincide with the 40th anniversary of the completion of Danish architect Jørn Utzon‘s Sydney Opera House, The Opera House Project takes you on a journey from the project’s inception in 1954 – known as Design 218 – to the completed masterpiece up to 2012, and all the personal, political and technical struggles that the designers were faced with. As expressed by Sam Doust, writer and director of the project, the epic journey is based on an “aspiration to perfection” and then the “failure to achieve it”.
Today is the 40th anniversary of the completion of the Sydney Opera House, the symbol of Australia. Since its opening in 1973, the Opera House has welcomed over 65 million people to more than 80,000 memorable events. To celebrate, an Anniversary program will run from mid to late October, with concerts, tours, exhibitions, and cake! A true masterpiece that continues to redefine the ambitions of Australia, the Opera House is part of an incredible story, a work of architecture that belongs to everyone.
