Pinchgut Opera

Pinchgut Opera is Australia's only company dedicated to Baroque opera and vocal music, with a global reputation as one of the world's finest companies specialising in historically informed performance.

Pinchgut takes rare and often undiscovered masterpieces from the 17th and 18th centuries and re-creates them in the modern frame, giving contemporary relevance to this exquisite music of the past for today’s audiences to enjoy.

“… time suspended itself for a moment so that truth and beauty could merge.”
