Opera Australia Season at the Opera House



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. 

We would like to share our love of this wonderful artform with you. Visit us at
Opera Australia. 


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.
