Yarra Valley Opera Festival

Gertrude Opera is thrilled to announce the program for the Yarra Valley Opera Festival, Australia’s first ever online opera festival, running from 16-25 October 2020. 

“As insurmountable as the concept of an online opera festival seemed back in March, and despite the temptation to sit out 2020 until we can perform for live audiences again, I believe my job is to guide our artists and company through all this uncertainty by demonstrating flexibility and adaptability,” says Gertrude Opera’s Artistic Director Linda Thompson. “Nothing compares to the live theatre experience, but we’re enjoying exploring what we can achieve through the digital medium. It’s a steep learning curve and we’re inspired by the possibilities of what opera can be, in connecting with old and new audiences.”
