In 2017, Victorian Opera invites you into an operatic storybook coloured with vibrant musical expression, vivid theatricality and the country’s brightest talent.
Fables unite our season as we revisit beloved stories, fairy tales and legends from writers such as Charles Perrault, Hans Christian Andersen and William S. Burroughs; tales which reflect the deepest truths of the human experience. We retrace varied rites of passage and journeys to new perspectives. We enter a dark wood pierced by shafts of light offering direction, discovery and revelation. Join us.
