Opera’s back! Opera Australia’s 2021 season kicks off

Merry Widow Opera

In what’s probably the best piece of news to start 2021 with, Opera Australia’s back.

After a hiatus of what felt like forever because of the pandemic, a brand new season has just been announced, kicking off with a show in English that everyone can appreciate.

With emotions flying, the leadership of Opera Australia announced the Merry Widow will take to the stage at the Sydney Opera House in all its 50s art deco glamour. This is on from 5 January.

Followed by Verdi’s Ernani in collaboration with La Scala in Milan, it’s a first for Opera Australia and the Opera House, shining a light on the magic of Verdi’s Italian classics.

Followed by other classics like Tosca and a few other firsts, Opera Australia is stopping at nothing to return its singers to the stage in their world-class best.
