Ballet & Opera

Orchestra Victoria are expert ‘orchestral partners’ and differ greatly from symphonic orchestras in their ability to complement the action on stage, adapt to live theatrical performance and react to the direction of the conductor at lightning speed.

A pit orchestra has to have the stamina to last the distance of a full length ballet or opera and maintain the highest artistic standards for its entirety – that is what Orchestra Victoria does best!

OV are one of only two highly specialised Ballet and Opera orchestras in Australia and are the performance partners of The Australian Ballet, Opera Australia and Victorian Opera and regularly perform with international artists.
