The Sydney Opera House turned 40 last week and i was fortunate to be commissioned to photograph some of the celebrations.
It started with an event named “Cake and Song” on the Opera House forecourt. My role began on a ferry from Rose Bay to the Opera House on board with 40 life savers and then ended photographing the formalities on the Opera House steps.
Since the Opera House was designed by a Dane, Jørn Utzon, much of the celebrations had a Danish edge to them, most notably with Denmark’s Crown Prince Couple, Frederik and Mary in attendance.
The main 40th festivities wrapped up with a concert on the Sydney Opera House forecourt.
And while it wasn’t part of the Opera House’s official 40th celebrations, the morning after the forecourt concert, Katy Perry performed outside for Sunrise.
