ABOUT US

Now in its fifth decade, Orchestra Victoria is one of Australia’s two specialist opera and ballet orchestras. It is the performance partner of The Australian Ballet, Opera Australia and Victorian Opera, and works with companies from across Australia and the world, delivering more than 200 performances each year. Orchestra Victoria is committed to creating opportunities for all Victorians to experience orchestral music, and also presents concerts and education workshops in regional and outer metropolitan centres across Victoria.

During this period of change, during which we are unable to gather in person, Orchestra Victoria will be bringing the joy of ballet and opera music to your living rooms through our online platforms and website. The musicians of the orchestra will perform for you, take you backstage, interview other musicians and colleagues from the world of ballet and opera, demonstrate orchestral instruments and how to play them, write articles, and give you tantalising glimpses into their lives beyond the pit.
