About Sydney Opera HouseSatellite view is showing Sydney Opera House in Sydney Australia, located in Sydney Harbour.
The Opera House was inaugurated by Queen Elizabeth II in 1973, ten years after the original completion date. Sydney Opera is recognised globally as the finest building of the 20th Century even though until this day it remains incomplete.
The Opera House is a world-class performing arts center and became a cultural icon of both Sydney and the Australian nation. The venue was created by Danish architect Jørn Utzon, he was responsible for the iconic white silhouette, while the interiors were finished off by a team of local architects, after Utzon's resignation in 1966. In June 2007 the Sydney Opera House was included on the UNESCO World Heritage List for its innovation in both architectural form and structural design.
