What is FOMO?

By joining Friends of Melbourne Opera (FOMO) you become a supporter of Melbourne’s own opera company.

Melbourne Opera is a vibrant professional opera company providing quality opera productions at realistic prices for Melbourne audiences.

The company receives no government support and relies solely on box offce sales and the generosity of its beneficiaries. The Company punches way above its weight with annual seasons in the Melbourne Opera Precinct (which includes the iconic Athenaeum and Regent Theatres) and Victorian regional centres.

Melbourne Opera also tours internationally, including highly acclaimed tours of China. This young Company thus provides a vital performing platform for young artists, whether in the dynamic Melbourne Opera Chorus, orchestra, or as a soloist.

Becoming a FOMO launches you into this operatic world as a key supporter of the Company’s mission. You’ll experience the preparation of our productions, meet artists, producers, and designers; further explore opera through talks, masterclasses, concerts, and soirees. But most importantly you join a group of opera lovers who support a young, vibrant Company.

There will be plenty of opportunities to socialise with these delightful people through dinners, special events, and film nights. Why wait? Join us now.

Patrons are reminded to to avoid ticket “resale” sites such as Viagogo, who advertise heavily and often mislead consumers into paying much higher prices than necessary. Tickets to our shows should only be purchased from an authorised and reputatable company like Ticketmaster, Ticketek or GoTix.
