Best Answer

The Sydney Opera House was designed by Danish architect Joern Utzon in 1955. Work commenced on the opera House in 1959. The building was completed in 1973, at a cost of $102 million. The Opera House was formally opened by Queen Elizabeth II on 20 October 1973. The opening was celebrated with fireworks and a performance of Beethoven's Symphony No. 9. Prior to this, however, Sergei Prokofiev's 'War and Peace' was played at the Opera Theatre on 28 September 1973.
