Lyric Opera

Lyric Opera of Melbourne is a bold and diverse opera company committed to developing talented young artists in the operatic arts. They perform works rarely staged in Australia, presenting them in innovative and unusual ways, often using non- traditional methods and contemporary practices that both challenge and entertain. With outstanding casts that combine established and emerging singers and musicians, their productions are always original. Lyric Opera staged its first production in March 2003 to critical acclaim and has since then continued its commitment to presenting fresh interpretations of lesser-known works from the operatic repertoire.
