It Happened On #23

Sit back and enjoy yet another weekend edition of It Happened On

History is back to being boring

It happened on October 20 1973… After 15 years of construction, the Sydney Opera House opens. It cost $80 million and was designed by Jorn Utzon Famous for its geometric roof shells, the structure contains several large auditoriums and presents an average of 3,000 events a year to an estimated two million people. The first performance in the complex was the Australian Opera’s production of Sergei Prokofiev’s War and Peace, which was held in the 1,547-seat Opera Theatre. Today, the Opera House remains Sydney’s best-known landmark

Also on October 20 1972,  Snoop Dogg or Lion or whatever he’s called now, was born

Never been to the Opera House or an opera. Probably a good thing
