I took the one hour English tour one afternoon which allows you to see the inner workings of the Opera House, arguably the busiest opera house in the world,  in addition to getting all of the facts and trivia that your mind can handle.  We were able to go onstage and watch as crews changed out sets for the performance that evening.  The complete stage was bigger than the overall seating area which holds 2,200 people.  It felt as if I were standing in an airplane hangar.  Each day the crew doesn’t get to the work on the stage until after the daily rehearsal is over at 2PM.  From 2PM to curtain call that night the crew is busy changing out sets.  I could have simply stood around and watched the crew set up and been entertained for an hour – but there was much more to see in this massive structure.
