Reimagining the potential of opera, for everyone.
Based in Melbourne, Victorian Opera is a national leader in presenting unforgettable opera experiences. As the state opera company of Victoria, we are committed to making creative and accessible opera for everyone, and evolving the art form in adventurous ways.
From opera diehards to first-timers, over 30,000 people experience our work annually through live performances and streamed events throughout Victoria. We premiere at least one new Australian work each year and have staged 22 new works since the company formed in 2005.
We employ hundreds of people across the creative industries, recruit some of the ﬁnest singers from Australia and around the world, and collaborate with Australia's leading companies, venues and learning institutions. The next generation of talent is developed from the ground up through the Victorian Opera Youth Chorus Ensemble (VOYCE) and our innovative Access All Areas: Livestream Program. As part of our commitment to developing the art form, we also stage opera annually in Tasmania.
Recognised for our unique voice and contribution to the country's operatic landscape, Victorian Opera became an Australian Major Performing Arts company in 2019.
Victorian Opera inspires audiences with our imaginative approach to opera and we invite you to join us.
