Sydney Opera House Forecourt


Set yourself on the world’s greatest harbourside stage.

SOH Forecourt will reopen briefly in October 2013 until March 2014 for 40th Birthday activities and Summer at the House events. Building work will then continue until the project is fully completed in late 2014.

Capture the imagination of thousands by making the world’s most incredible city harbour your stage. Our open-air grand-scale forecourt is where some of the biggest international stars have found a global audience of millions – from Jamiroquai and Crowded House to Sting and Oprah Winfrey. Positioned directly beneath the famous white sails, the Outdoor Forecourt is renowned as one of the world’s greatest and most versatile venue spaces. With the granite Monumental Steps creating a natural amphitheatre and a backdrop of stunning harbour views, this will make for a once-in-a-lifetime event.
