The Sydney Opera House is about to shutmain
Tomorrow will see the last performance at the Sydney Opera House concert hall until 2022 at the earliest.
On Saturday the builders move in for a $150 million renovation.
Better acoustics are promised.
The Guardian has a good piece on all the botches.
UPDATE from the SOH:
While the Concert Hall is closed, the Opera House will remain open with a range of performances across our six other venues and two outdoor performance spaces. Tours will continue and all on-site restaurants and bars will be operating as normal, ensuring a vibrant and welcoming precinct for the millions of visitors who come to the Opera House each year.
Audiences will still be able to enjoy unmissable performances and experiences across the Opera House and we will continue to host flagship festivals and events such as Vivid LIVE, All About Women and Dance Rites as well as a packed program from our resident companies and other presenting companies.
