A lot can happen in 60 years – and Opera Australia is not a company to shy away from drama. Horses on stage, props catching fire, rogue chickens entering the orchestra pit and singers stuck in lifts when they’re due to be on stage are but a few of the exciting moments experienced.
Against all odds, in a place thousands of kilometres from where opera began, Opera Australia has grown into the third-busiest opera company in the world. Over 60 years of bringing great opera to Australia, millions of people have had that opera ‘moment’.
As Australia’s largest and oldest arts company, we want to celebrate with the people that made it possible.
Four incredible maestros lead a program of beautiful music at a Gala Concert featuring our biggest stars, the Australian Opera and Ballet Orchestra and the Opera Australia Chorus – with a special appearance by many of the greatest stars of the past singing in a special 60th Anniversary Choral.
Nicole Car, José Carbó, Emma Matthews, Milijana Nikolic and Diego Torre inherited the legacy of Sutherland and so many outstanding singers. Now you have the chance to hear these exhilarating performers singing some of opera’s grandest arias.
Every ticket sold will help Opera Australia make more of those moments, for 60 more years and beyond.
