Which opera to choose? Which ones will I enjoy?
Whether you are coming to the opera for the first time or you've been subscribing for years it's always a tough decision. Please help yourself to the many resources in this website which tell you more about the productions this year. There are photos, trailers, plot summaries, biographies of the performers, media releases and much more.
If you're new to opera, we can suggest some operas that are perfect for first-timers.
You might also like to consult one of our experienced Customer Service Representatives at the Opera Australia box office.
Just bring yourself! Don’t forget glasses, if you need them, so that you can follow the surtitles (an English translation of the words that is projected above the stage). There's no need, these days, to dress up for the opera, although some of us like to. But at any given performance you will see all kinds of dress from black tie to denim, so the choice is yours.
