Discover some of our venues...

Concert Hall

The world-renowned Concert Hall is the Sydney Opera House’s most majestic space. The largest of the internal venues, its high vaulted ceiling, white birch timber and brush box paneling provide an incredible setting for your event.

The Utzon Room

Elegance, intimacy and impeccable acoustics combine in this small but impressive space. Named in honour of architect Jørn Utzon, this is the only internal venue wholly designed by the Danish master.

The Studio

The Studio is an ideal space for contemporary music, film screenings, cocktail parties, cabaret and circus acts or spoken-word and corporate presentations. The flexible seating layout allows for standing crowds, cabaret-style or tiered seating.
