Orchestra

The current Melbourne Opera Orchestra has been developed into Melbourne Opera’s third orchestra since its formation in 2003. The Orchestra leads an active concert life as well as playing in the opera pit.

The Melbourne Opera Orchestra has appeared at the Melbourne Concert Hall (Hamer Hall), Crown Casino, Her Majesty’s Theatre, and the Athenaeum Theatre, and at numerous regional Performing Arts Centres and wineries, and in December 2015-January 2016 undertook a very successful tour into China, and has been invited to make two further visits there this year.

The Orchestra is available for corporate and private bookings. For enquiries please contact Orchestra Management on +61 3 9614 4188.
