The Yarra Valley Opera Festival is back this October, with a stellar international line-up.
Across 10 days and five events, you’ll see the best and worst of humanity expressed as heart-stopping, awe-inspiring opera.
The Enchanted Pig – a delightful fairy-tale English opera with hilarious twists and turns, ravishing tunes and a story for all ages. International director Gale Edwards AM teams up with Oscar-winning costume designer Tim Chappel (The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert) for this Australian premiere.
Poppea – a new look at an old opera that dives deep into a hedonistic and decadent world of power, sex, tragedy… and gaslighting.
Macbeth – a contemporary and electric take on the Shakespearean classic that holds a mirror to world politics. Co-produced by Gertrude Opera and New York-based Monk Parrots, with two-time Grammy-nominated bass-baritone John Marcus Bindel in the lead role.
A Very Very Very Short History of Opera – a romp through 400+ years of opera in less than 90 minutes. Enter with open ears and leave with an expanded mind and full heart.
Held in an intimate 250-seat pop-up theatre, you’ll be surrounded by the rustic charm of a working farm at Olinda Yering.
Feast on gourmet meals and wine by local makers and be bussed to and from the Yarra Valley for this unique festival – the first of its kind in Australia, just 50 minutes from Melbourne.
You’ll be engaged, be moved and ultimately, be transformed.
This is opera, reimagined.
