Welcome to the


This site is intended as a portal for the creative capital of Australia’s operatic artform and a platform to champion the work of our composers, librettists, designers, directors and singers.

The library features a catalogue of Australian operas from companies around the country. You’ll find production videos, media clippings, design drawings, interviews with the creators, programs and more, lending rich context to the works. New content is added regularly so the list of productions will keep growing.
