2019 West Australian Opera
Opera is all about heart.
But, in 2019, West Australian
Opera is digging even deeper.
The surprising theme behind
our season is…blood. Blood is
life-force, symbol, power, and
passion…just like the best opera.

In 2019, we put four blood types
under the microscope:

•   The sign of approaching death
    (La traviata).
•   The family ties of a warring
    couple to their daughter
    (The Magic Flute).
•   The price taken in gleeful
    revenge for past wrongs
    (Sweeney Todd).
•   The stain which can never be
    rubbed clean (Macbeth).

At West Australian Opera,
we tell stories through the power
of the singing human voice.
And, as always, our stories are
about the experience of being
human - our passions, our peril,
and our pleasures. In 2019, we
continue to bring you powerful
stories, sung through arresting
music. Join us on the next stage
of our journey…it’s going to be
bloody fantastic.

     The arts, quite simply, nourish the soul. They sustain, comfort, inspire. There is nothing like that
     exquisite moment when you first discover the beauty of connecting with others in celebration
     of larger ideals and shared wisdom. (Gordon Gee)

     Opera is beautiful and timeless but it is also expensive, requiring hundreds of highly-skilled
     professionals across a range of disciplines to bring a production to life. Our donors are at the heart
     of what we do and assist us to put opera on the mainstage at His Majesty’s Theatre, to reach out
     into regional communities, to develop young artists and to enrich the cultural landscape of our State.

     ANNUAL GIVING
     There is no question that the support from government and from the corporate sector
     provides the life blood for a company like ours. But it’s the support of individual philanthropy that
     provides our lungs. It allows us to breath, it gives us oxygen. It is the very thing that puts a spring in
     our step and for that we are tremendously grateful. (Andrew Pascoe, Chairman)

     are tax deductible). Every gift will assist with our work. To make a gift you can add a donation when
