Behind-the-scenes access with an expert guide

Students will discover the Indigenous history of Bennelong Point and reflect on the cultural significance of the site today. Our experienced guide will then take students for an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the design principals formulated by architect Jorn Utzon. Finally, students will learn about the people who create the live performance experiences within these iconic spaces, from lighting designers to stage artists. You won’t believe how much is involved!
