Set within the farmyard grounds of a historic Yarra Valley homestead, the Yarra Valley Opera Festival promises a world-class, international and uniquely Australian celebration of opera’s power to tell compelling stories and deliver a new landmark event in the country’s rich arts and cultural landscape.
The Yarra Valley Opera Festival leads a stellar line-up of opera-theatre as we’ve never seen before—at Australia’s only opera festival.

The dramatic Handmaid’s Tale opera is set to premiere in Australia, as part of the inaugural festival. The impressive, internationally-acclaimed cast boasts American vocal powerhouse Sarah Heltzel, as the main protagonist, Offred, alongside local renowned soprano Emily Burke, as Aunt Lydia. Also heralding a brilliant young cast and set to wow audiences is the rousing, energetic and full-blooded Italian opera, The Elixir of Love, which will be performed in English.

The Yarra Valley Opera Festival offers audiences the chance to relax with a country picnic before enjoying a cocktail and taking their seats in the intimate theatre marquee to enjoy brilliant opera.

McKenzie's Opera Festival Shuttle Bus can collect you & your party from Fed Square or Lilydale Station—or if you're a local, from Healesville—and have you at Olinda Yarra at Yering in time for the performances.

The Yarra Valley Opera Festival will run from 12 to 21 October at Olinda Yarra at Yering and various satellite locations. For more information or to book, visit Yarra Valley Opera Festival website.
