West Australian Opera
For 30 years West Australian Opera has presented Opera in the Park, igniting emotions and sharing the splendour of live performance with thousands of Western Australians. Now it’s time to celebrate this annual family event with not one, but two huge nights in the stunning Supreme Court Gardens. And what better way to do that than by presenting an all WA line-up featuring some of the best musical talent in the west? Thrilling singing, romantic melodies and dramatic ensembles will stir the soul under a balmy Perth sky. Enjoy classical music favourites performed by West Australian Opera principal artists, the West Australian Opera Chorus with the full might of West Australian Symphony Orchestra.
Tickets to this 30th anniversary concert gala are free, but you will need to reserve your place.
Pack a picnic, bring the family and join in this very special birthday celebration.
