Season Overview

In 2015, we’ll sip champagne with a Parisian party girl (La Traviata), get caught in torrid love triangles (Aida) and find ourselves swept up in passion, politics and a set like a living Velázquez painting (Don Carlos), as some of the world’s most popular operas take the stage.

A triumphant procession of Egyptians, dripping in gold, will light up Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour - Aida.

And we’ll find ourselves making deals with the devil (Faust) and experiencing a day of utter madness (The Marriage of Figaro) in two new productions.

Get your kicks on board a luxury liner as good old fashioned tomfoolery rocks the high seas. Opera Australia and John Frost are proud to present Cole Porter’s smash-hit musical comedy, Anything Goes.

Whether it’s one of the world’s most loved stories (La bohème) or a brand new production, there’s always something special to take away from a performance. So if you love getting swept away by romance (Turandot), being gripped by tragedy (Madama Butterfly), laughing so hard it hurts or all of the above, 2015 is the season to experience it all.

Subscriptions on sale now at Opera Australia.

Single Tickets on sale October 20th.
