Opera Australia casts its productions from an ensemble of Australian artists, with regular appearances by international guest artists.
The ensemble includes around 80 performers – opera singers, dancers, conductors and repetiteurs – and 200 people in the areas of scenic construction and painting, lighting, design, direction, wardrobe, wig-making, management and administration.
The award-winning Opera Australia Chorus appears in Sydney and Melbourne.
Moffatt Oxenbould Young Artist Program
The Moffatt Oxenbould Young Artist Program of Opera Australia is a two-year training program for selected young Australian opera singers. Designed to strengthen and supplement their already evident talent and performance skills, the program involves them closely with the rehearsal and performance activity of the Company. Opera Australia is most grateful for the support provided to enable the participation of singers in the Young Artist Program.
