Opera Queensland is a not for profit organisation whose mission is to reflect, celebrate and enrich life in our communities through the shared experience of an extraordinary art form – opera. Opera can be beautiful and challenging. It’s about human expression on a large scale – there are emotions so intense, ideas and stories so expansive that only opera can express them.

Whether traditional or contemporary, opera demands artistic excellence, discipline and rigour, qualities OperaQ artists bring to over 60,000 Queenslanders every year through our in-theatre seasons, educational programs, regional touring and community events. These programs reflect our commitment to excellence, innovation and community.

We believe that a vibrant arts scene is the lifeblood of a progressive society, and that Queensland audiences deserve an opera company of the highest world standard.

To realise our aspirations each year Opera Queensland depends upon the support of generous individuals, the corporate sector, trusts and foundations. Your precious gift is essential to ensure that Opera Queensland continues to be a leader.

All contributions help make a difference and any donations above $2 are tax-deductible.

All donations of $500 dollars and above are recognized in our Patron Program and are tax deductible and the Queensland Government will match your donation dollar for dollar to a total value of $100,000.
