Opera Australia is Australia’s national opera company with the mission to present opera that excites audiences and sustains and develops the art form. Opera Australia is in the middle of a vital transition: from being largely a very fine repertory opera company to being a production house which is able to present the great repertoire of the past while creating the repertoire of the future in truly diversified and even surprising places.
Opera Australia is respectful of our history and liberated by ideas. It is at the forefront of inventive stagecraft, brilliant storytelling and nurturing outstanding talent. Whether through Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour, the Melbourne Ring Cycle, musical theatre productions like South Pacific or The King and I, an expansive regional and community program through Oz Opera, or growth in the digital space, Opera Australia is setting an ambitious agenda and reaching vast and diverse new audiences.
In 2013 Opera Australia and Oz Opera performed to audiences exceeding 530,000 people, as well as a growing international broadcast audience. Opera Australia is dedicated to delivering great opera for everyone, on the Sydney Opera House stage or in a school gymnasium in outback Australia. We are committed to excellence in all endeavours.
