HELP US CONTINUE OUR WORK
Pacific Opera has, since 2003, trained more than 200 young Australian artists many of whom have established professional performing careers.
Pacific Opera relies on the generosity of the community to continue our work to deliver advanced training, education through performances, master classes and workshops free to the students.
Pacific Opera provides mentorship and work experience with leading opera singers and directors.
Pacific Opera is the leading source of young talent to major opera companies such as Opera Australia.
Why do we need the Circle of Friends?
Pacific Opera does not receive government support; thus, we rely on the generous support of our community. In the 2017/18 audition intake for new young artists we had 75 talented auditionees but could only take in 14 new young artists, which brings our total to 21 this year. Many were disappointed. We would like to increase our annual intake and provide security for the program. Each young artist who completes the two-year program receives a completion certificate.
