Photographer's Note

The Sydney Opera House turned 40 last week and thousands of people turned out to celebrate the construction of this iconic building.

The Sydney Opera House is a multi-venue performing arts centre. It is situated on Bennelong Point in Sydney Harbour, close to the Sydney Harbour Bridge, the facility is adjacent to the Sydney CBD and the Royal Botanic Gardens, between Sydney and Farm Coves.

Designed by Danish architect Jørn Utzon, the facility formally opened on 20 October 1973 a project that began with Utzon's 1957 selection as winner of an international design competition. The NSW Government, led by Premier Joseph Cahill authorised work to begin in 1958, with Utzon directing construction.
