Opera Australia's Oz Opera is the touring arm of the Company. It performs in communities both large and small across Australia. Oz Opera prides itself on giving people young and old their first experience of opera.
Each year Oz Opera presents a national tour of a fully-staged opera, specially designed to tour to metropolitan, regional and remote communities across Australia.
Oz Opera's Schools Company gives around 400 performances a year in metropolitan and regional schools in Victoria and NSW. Each year this enables between 60,000 to 80,000 primary aged students to experience the magic of opera in their very own classrooms.
The Schools Company programme has been touring for over twenty years and has provided first time access to opera to over one million students.
In 2013 Oz Opera presents three productions:
Oz Opera is supported by Playing Australia, the Australian Government's national performing arts touring program, and through the Opera Conference, the national partnership of professional opera companies which is supported by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body.
