Victorian Opera

Victorian Opera

Led by Music Director Richard Gill, Victorian Opera approaches its fifth birthday with a distinct artistic program, championing the creation of new Australian opera whilst presenting less familiar repertoire to audiences in Melbourne and across regional Victoria.

"This rising company consistently punches above its weight and age",The Herald Sun, 2009

Victorian Opera is committed to presenting new opera each year and engaging the widest possible audience with accessible ticket pricing and regional touring. Victorian Opera is also committed to collaborating and co-producing with different partners (including Malthouse Theatre as well as festivals and other opera companies) and also maintains a vibrant education program. The company nurtures Victorian Youth Opera, a strong youth development initiative, and presents popular community events such as Sing Your Own Opera.

As Victoria's state opera company Victorian Opera has a unique role; to present professional opera in Victoria; maintain a commissioning program for new Australian work; create more employment and professional development opportunities for Victorian opera artists; and provide access to touring productions for regional Victorians. Victorian Opera has also established and maintains the only professional chorus in Victoria.
