    I am a US war veteran with MS and confined to a wheelchair. Recently I visited Sydney and booked the wheelchair accessible tour ‘ Sydney Opera House Secrets tour.’

    After the fascinating tour of the Opera House I got to hear it again in the most unique way possible when real magic happened.

    I met up with a veteran of the opera world named Marie Claire. She has been coaching singers at the Sydney Opera House for years and was good friends with the opera legend the late Joan Sutherland. Marie Claire and I sat down to talk about her amazing experiences and listen to her fascinating stories before taking a behind-the-scenes tour of some restricted areas in the opera house, like the areas where they prepare the wigs and the stars apply their makeup before shows.

    Afterwards, Marie Claire asked me if I had planned on attending that night’s opera on the front steps of the opera house, which would be a retelling of the history of the building. I told her I didn’t think I could get tickets, so she offered to give me her staff discount and helped me get a ticket for that night. I couldn’t believe it! I would be seeing not only an opera at the Sydney Opera House, but on the front steps under the stars! Amazing!
