Function Centre

This premium space within the building envelope will be available for celebrating significant events and marking important occasions - from weddings, intimate gatherings or community celebrations in one of the world's most spectacular locations.

This flexible, all-weather event space will offer direct access to the Northern Broadwalk and will be available year-round, with capacity for up to 500 people at a cocktail event or 190 people seated. From the inside, you will have dramatic views of Sydney Harbour.

The Function Centre is currently under construction and will reopen in 2019.

Northern and Southern Foyers

Inspire your guests with our Northern or Southern Foyers in the Concert Hall or Joan Sutherland Theatre. Both spaces offer breathtaking water views both day and night. 

This space has three levels on offer including the Granite, Lounge and Bar Level. These spaces are one of the Opera House's most versatile venues and can be host to a wide range of your catering and function needs, from a beautiful breakfast on the Granite level or a launch cocktail party in the Southern Foyer.

Our Northern and Southern Foyers in both the Concert Hall or Joan Sutherland Theatre can cater for a wide number of capacities depending on your event.

Utzon Room

Sydney Opera House architect Jørn Utzon completed the design for only one interior space – now called the Utzon room. 

With capacity for up to 200 people at a cocktail event or 100 people seated, the western wall is adorned with a vibrant tapestry of Utzon’s own design. The ceiling features dramatic concrete beams and the eastern wall is composed of floor to ceiling windows that look across Sydney Harbour to the Botanic Gardens. The Utzon Room offers guests an intimate and uplifting experience.

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.
