Mazda Opera in The Bowl

Opera in The Bowl

It’s a Saturday evening in summer. You’re sitting in a park with family and friends, and a fabulous picnic dinner. The picture is complete when the glorious live music from Opera Australia begins.

Hear our brightest stars, under the stars, sing opera's most famous arias with the magnificent backing of Orchestra Victoria.

Dress up — or not — it's your night to enjoy the power of the human voice in the kind of communal, cultural celebration Melbourne loves best.

Bach's glorious motet Der Geist hilft unsrer Schwachheit auf, Hugo Distler's beautiful setting of Es ist ein Ros entsprungen, Arvo Pärt's sublime Sieben Magnificat Antiphonen and songs from Kurt Weill's Die Dreigroschenoper (Threepenny Opera).
