Who we are
Opera Australia is Australia’s national opera company, presenting more than 700 performances and playing to more than half a million people each year.
Opera is a vital part of Australia’s cultural landscape. We perform the world’s best loved operas under the iconic sails of the Sydney Opera House and at Arts Centre Melbourne, as well as in school halls and outback towns, on Sydney Harbour and the Gold Coast beach. Our performances are broadcast in cinemas, on national television and ABC radio. We also present lavish musicals and concerts around the country.
We bring exciting international talent to the Australian stage, and support the careers of hundreds of Australian singers, musicians and artisans.
