Hungerford Hill Wine and Nibbles served.
In a rare collaboration with Jørn Uzton, and his architect son Jan, Katarina takes us a visual journey that focuses on the future of the Opera House, as much as on its history.
Jørn Utzon never saw the Opera House after its controversial construction was completed but each year he would be sent thousands of photographs.
Katarina's offered a fresh perspective and he said to her, “It is wonderful to see your interpretation of the building. Many of the images remind me of my first conceptual sketches for the shells."
Copies personally signed by Katarina will be available at the event.
