Protesters shine torches, lights onto the Sydney Opera House

Protesters shine torches, lights onto the Sydney Opera House

The Sydney Opera House initially rejected the proposal but a state official overruled and allowed a revised 10-minute projection of the ad for October 9. "But if they're going to, they may as well give Victoria a plug".

"It will be kept secure until it is released to the public on the Opera House tonight".

Perhaps the most provocative image used by Andrews to fuel the so-called "rivalry" between the cities was the Victorian state government logo - in Labor Party red - superimposed onto the sails.

"I used some words in these programs about the Everest, and the Opera House, and Louise, which in hindsight I now most regret hearing, having heard the impact they've clearly had on some people", he told his 2GB listeners this morning.

The broadcaster yesterday morning apologised for his on-air treatment of the Opera House CEO Louise Herron, an interview that drew accusations of bullying.

The controversial Opera House projection is due to take place at 8pm on Tuesday, when the barrier draw for The Everest will be projected on the Opera House sails.

It is a position the German team have enjoyed for most of the season yet once again they are taking nothing for granted.

In a dramatic turn yesterday, Racing NSW suspended all betting for the $13 million race from noon and announced the barrier draw would be conducted in confidence.

The results of the barrier draw will still be beamed onto the sails, but the draw has already taken place.

Meanwhile, opponents of the ad launched a massive petition, projected Alan Jones' personal phone number onto the Opera House in protest, and turned up last night to block out the Racing NSW ad by shining torches on it.

Since the NSW Government directed the Opera House to allow the promotional material on racing to be projected, the backlash over the decision has reached a boiling point.

In a letter to the premier on Tuesday, the NSW Heritage Council said it was extremely disappointed with the government's decision and described the projection as "inappropriate".

"The specific exemption for the Opera House says you can't do it if it's commercial", Mr Quint said.
