Summary: I own (I think) every LEGO architecture released, and this is probably tied with the Leaning Tower of Pisa in terms of the sheer creativity that the designers employed. I'm shocked that so much detail in terms of curves and angles are incorporated in this model given its small size. It's obviously a pretty unique structure, but to capture it so accurately and elegantly with (relatively) few pieces is a true work of art.
Not as solid as other sets in the Architecture series

Summary: I own most of the Architecture sets and for a small set, it is a fairly good representation of the Opera House, giving you the overall feel of the building. The one downside however is that the building feels "loose" when seated on the foundation, due to the fact that they are only held on by a 2x2 spinning piece. If you jiggle the set, the buildings will shake, and are fairly easy to pull off.
Summary: When it comes to building this wonderful piece, it's rather easy. You do have to double check to make sure the roof piece are facing the correct way because if it isn't an actual representation of the real building, it is NOTHING AT ALL. Good piece, looks dope on my shelf, and is priced very reasonably. I cannot wait to one day visit Australia, I plan on honeymooning there.
