PHOENIX RISING JULY P.A.D. TRAVELOG – DESTINATION: POETRY (SYDNEY OPERA HOUSE)

OperaHouse

The Sydney Opera House is a multi-venue performing arts centre in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. Situated on Bennelong Point in Sydney Harbour, close to the Sydney Harbour Bridge, the facility is adjacent to the Sydney central business district and the Royal Botanic Gardens, between Sydney and Farm Coves.

Identified as one of the 20th century’s most distinctive buildings and one of the most famous performing arts centres in the world, the facility is managed by the Sydney Opera House Trust, under the auspices of the New South Wales Ministry of the Arts.

Though its name suggests a single venue, the project comprises multiple performance venues which together are among the busiest performing arts centres in the world—hosting over 1,500 performances each year.

Koala Bears, Kangaroos and didgeridoos – anything “down-under” is your goal!

    DOWN UNDER

    Where else
    can wallabies
    scratch fleas in busy streets
    while a pair of koala bears
    sip tea?

  2. July 15 – Sydney Opera House

    Ozzie Longing

    I’ve always wanted to go there
    Where kangaroos and koala bears
    Run here and there and everywhere
    And the cars drive left of the line

    Where people speak so funny
    And they have very colorful money
    Where the Outback is hot and sunny
    But the cities are clean and refined

    But, alas, I never made the trip there
    I’ve no memories or pictures to share
    I’d still love to visit, I declare
    If only I had the money and the time

    Sydney Opera House

    Like a family of whales
    poking their heads
    out of the water,
    but the singing’s beyond
    the song of whales.

  4. CULTURE ON THE HALF-SHELL

    A multipurpose venue
    for a multifunction night,
    a many splendor thing for sure,
    Sydney has it right!

    A stage, a theater,
    an exhibition center,
    much to be seen
    at this Australian scene.

    The Concert Hall has heard it all,
    The playhouse is quite fun.
    You can shop and go on tours
    and the Forecourt offers more outdoors.

    You can get a bite,
    you can party all night,
    culture on the half-shell,
    it is quite a site!

    Imposing, impressive,
    the architecture
    of the opera house,
    transmitting cones
    of light that shine
    like mirrors in the harbor.
    Of course, I would rather
    see a kangaroo.
