Victorian Opera has announced it will remain a tenant of the company’s long-time home in the heart of Melbourne at the historic Horti Hall. Previously announced plans to relocate to a fit-for-purpose building in Laurens Street, West Melbourne have proven not financially viable for the company.
The decision has been made with a clear view to maintaining Victorian Opera’s financial sustainability long into the future. As the company prepares to join the Australian Major Performing Arts Group (AMPAG) in 2019, Victorian Opera continues to grow and provide a unique and celebrated presence in the Australian operatic landscape.
Under the guidance and expertise of Victorian Opera’s newly appointed Chairman Genevieve Overell and the company’s wider board, Victorian Opera will continue its search for a new home and explore a full range of options.
