The Chorus Circle
Opera Australia’s award-winning chorus is renowned for its thrilling sound. Forty full-time singers make up the Opera Australia Chorus, evenly split between male and female singers, plus about 100 casual members from Sydney and Melbourne. All of the chorus are professional singers and some go on to perform principal roles.
Choristers need to have excellent musicianship, a good knowledge of different languages including French, Italian, and German and strong stagecraft skills. The Opera Australia Chorus is often working on several different productions concurrently — rehearsing one, learning another, and performing in the afternoon and evening. No two days are ever the same.
By joining the Chorus Circle you will support one of the most crucial arms of Opera Australia and develop a relationship with these extraordinary musicians who perform every night for the opera company. You will be invited to participate in the life of the chorus by attending closed music rehearsals and bespoke activities.
Your gift will enable the singers to partake in more professional development with additional masterclasses, musicianship classes and coaching with international music experts.
