Enjoyed this opera last night. Amazing set by Scott- Mitchell, superb performances, witty subtitles in Oz lingo, orchestra in top form. Free bus to the Quay and a ferry home. What more could you ask for? Highly recommend this opera! Chris Stevenson

Opera Australia's latest production of Don Giovanni was an enthralling night of 5 star entertainment. Teddy Tahu Rhodes portrayal of the dissolute Lothario was compelling to watch. His voice was magnificent conveying hypnotic power, utter ruthlessness and brutality. The staging utilised the limited space brilliantly.

A lovely way to have family gathering For ten years we have booked 4 operas a year, across the seasons. Arrive early to get a great table with a beautiful view of the harbour along the board walk, drinks at interval and always top class entertainment.Our seats at the end of the front row gives us great view of the hard working orchestra, conductor and wonderful view of stage yet they are graded as C Lucky us!

Opera Australia visited Wollongong with The Magic Flute this month giving local school choir children the opportunity to take the stage with the best.
Local residents revelled in the extravagance of city sets, chamber orchestra and magic of Mozart over 2 performances of this classic opera.
