Robert Holliston talks about opera at the Baumann Centre, 2015

What's on at Pacific Opera Victoria

Every season, Pacific Opera Victoria offers an exciting spectrum of events

  • Opera productions on our main stage at the Royal Theatre
  • Chamber performances at the Baumann Centre
  • The Co|Opera|tive, a series of events for artists, youth, and the community, encompassing everything we do off the stage to help opera come alive.
  • Special events to thank our donors and bring them closer to the art form they support so generously
  • Fundraising events to ensure the long-term future of opera

Opera and the arts are here, waiting to be discovered – at the theatre, in schools, in venues throughout the region, and at the Baumann Centre, POV's home for artist development and community engagement.
