After the deafening silence of last year and the longest interval in our 64-year history, thank you for helping us bring opera back!

Opera Australia is a not-for-profit organisation and ticket sales alone cannot cover the cost of producing opera. Without performances in 2020, we’re even more reliant on your generosity to help us recover and firmly secure the company’s future.

We are the first major opera company in the world to be back performing full-scale operatic productions to live audiences. In the arts, there is a shared sense of “the show must go on”. But we had to ensure we could bring opera back to you with certainty and safety. Returning to the stage has been an extraordinary feat. We are so proud of the passion and resilience of our extraordinary artists, artistic team and support teams across the organisation.

Please make a donation and help us continue to perform some of the greatest music ever written to as many people as possible.
