An inspiring, elegant venue next to the sparkling harbour.
Behind you the dazzling waters of Sydney Harbour; before you, a brilliantly coloured woollen tapestry designed by Opera House architect Jørn Utzon. What better setting for your event than the stunning Utzon Room?
Elegance, intimacy and impeccable acoustics combine in this impressive space, recently restored and noted as one of Sydney Opera House’s most structurally important and historic venues.
Bathed in natural light and pale timber finishes, and renamed in honour of the great architect, the multi-purpose Utzon Room is unique in being the only remaining wholly Utzon-designed space in the building. Its prestige is heightened by the 14-metre-wide tapestry which provides its centrepiece, by its rare easterly harbour views and by the sequence of monumental concrete structural beams that soar from floor to ceiling, and across which the play of light from the water creates an exquisite dappled effect.
Regularly used by Sydney Opera House Presents, the Utzon Room is a glamorous venue for parties, corporate functions and small productions of all kinds – and a truly special place to perform.
