Subscriptions are now on sale for Victorian Opera’s eclectic Quarter 3 productions, featuring legendary yet rarely staged Australian opera, Richard Meale’s Voss, and five-time Tony Award-winning musical The Who’s Tommy.

Subscriptions are available for an exclusive two-week period ahead of general ticket sales on Thursday 3 June at 10am.

After 30 years, Voss makes an overdue return to the Australian stage in a new production directed by Stuart Maunder for one-night-only at the Palais Theatre on 4 August. The seminal Australian work, based on Patrick White’s novel, has long been considered one of the country’s greatest operas. The production is presented in association with the Australian Academy of Music (ANAM) and supported by State Opera of South Australia, who will also stage this new production in September 2021.

Rescheduled from Victorian Opera’s Season 2020, The Who’s Tommy makes its long-awaited Australian debut at the Palais Theatre from 13 – 21 August. The high-octane musical is set to thrill Melbourne audiences with its electrifying soundtrack. Roger Hodgman returns to Victorian Opera to direct the new production, headlined by musical theatre star Mat Verevis as Tommy.

A new opera slated for Victorian Opera’s Quarter 4 in 2021, Richard Mills’ The Butterfly Lovers, has been postponed. A co-production Wild Rice Theatre in Singapore, ongoing international travel restrictions have made the production unfeasible to present in 2021.
