Sydney Opera House to be upgraded

The Sydney Opera House in Australia is well known for its looks but has always suffered from ‘hideous’ acoustics.

However, there are now plans to change all that as part of a £120m renovation plan. The building designed by Danish architect Jorn Utzon is regarded as one of the world’s architectural gems but it’s concerts always fall short due to the poor sound. The renovations will be the biggest since its completion in 1973.

The upgrade will focus on the concert hall which will be closed from August 2019 to January 2021.
