2018 Schools Performances

In 2018, we presented four dedicated schools performances of Hansel and Gretel at Arts Centre Melbourne, Playhouse in June. The production was attended by students F-7 studying English, The Arts, Drama and Music, and supported by free curriculum-aligned learning resources.

Work Experience 

We welcome students who have a genuine curiosity about all aspects of the performing arts industry and specifically the area in which Victorian Opera specialises. Students would be exposed to all the different departments of Victorian Opera not just the performance elements.
