We arrived on Australia Day, kind of like our Independance Day, a national holiday, so people were out in droves enjoying the various parades/festivities, and the music venues set up along the picturesque waterfront.
We checked into a performance at the Sydney Opera House (they're doing Madame Butterfly), but only the $300 tickets were left. Ouch! We did walk over there though, and had a dinner at a café under the opera house.

Unfortunately, the theatre was up two flights of stairs so my dad, who is in a wheelchair, could not get up to see it. The good thing was that Playing with Knives was the second play after intermission, so Mom sat at the outdoor café next door with Dad while Graeme and I watched the first half, then Mom came up after intermission and got to see the play. I'll have to post the play on YouTube when I get the DVD, so Dad can catch it then. All in all, it was a well-done production/performance, and we enjoyed it.
