Robert Holliston talks about opera at the Baumann Centre, 2015

What's on at Pacific Opera Victoria

Every season, Pacific Opera Victoria offers a tremendous range of events – mainstage opera productions, public previews and performances, programs for artists and youth, receptions and behind-the-scenes activities for donors, and much more.

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 new centre for artist training, youth education, and community engagement.
