Opera Etc. Online

The world we’re living in now is challenging us to remain Physically Distant but Socially Connected. We may not be able to gather in the theatre just yet, but Pacific Opera Victoria is still bringing opera into your home. We are discovering new ways to invest in creativity with an exhilarating variety of online programming – videos, podcasts, and more. We are thrilled to share it with you and to support the wonderful artists who are at the very heart of this glorious art form.

Get your fix of opera and arts programming here, at a time and place of your choosing. And get to know our wonderful artists as they practise their art and express their creativity.

Here’s what’s on right now!
