Arts for All Appeal

In 2022, lovers risk it all, myths are reborn, and the devil comes out to dance.

This is opera. Everything feels larger than life. Music transports us to other realms and the power of the human voice makes us catch our collective breath.

After a tumultuous year, Opera Australia is looking optimistically to the upcoming season where the prospect of treading the boards and welcoming audiences safely back into theatres becomes a reality again.

In Melbourne, the 2022 season opens with the beloved production of Verdi’s La Traviata where Melbourne’s own Stacey Alleaume gives courtesan Violetta with the free-spirit and lyrical coloratura that is making her an international star. French innovator, director Olivier Py makes Wagner’s Lohengrin a fairytale romance of mythical proportions. After being postponed in 2021, blockbuster musical sensation The Phantom of the Opera has its highly-anticipated run in Melbourne, on the State Theatre stage at Melbourne’s Arts Centre. A rare concert showcasing the depth and emotional resonance of the world’s greatest Italian bass Ferruccio Furlanetto. Don’t miss his devilish take in the concert rendition of Mefistofele.
