About Opera Australia : Based in Sydney on Gadigal land, we present over 600 annual performances to more than half a million people, including operas, musicals and concerts in our flagship home venues: Sydney Opera House and Arts Centre Melbourne. We present a national tour that extends from the red centre in the Northern Territory, to the wine regions of Western Australia, to the beach in Coolangatta.  We regularly work with some of the world’s most prestigious houses to create co-productions of powerful, often lesser-known, operas. Recent co-productions have included Szymanowski’s King Roger, Tchaikovksy’s Eugene Onegin and Shostakovich’s The Nose. Musicals have also formed an important part of our annual program over the last decade, with annual seasons in Sydney and Melbourne of some of the greatest works in the canon. Highlights have included Rodgers & Hammerstein’s South Pacific (2012), My Fair Lady (2016) directed by Dame Julie Andrew, and a sold-out season of The Phantom of the Opera (2022), which was the fastest selling production ever at the Sydney Opera House.
