Pinchgut Opera

Pinchgut Opera is Australia’s premier baroque opera company, celebrating the beauty and breadth of emotions through music and the human voice, and helping audiences discover something new.

Since 2001, Pinchgut has been at the forefront of early opera, renowned for pioneering excellence in historically informed vocal and instrumental performance.

No one in Australia is better placed than the award-winning Pinchgut Opera to bring you masterworks from the birth of opera to its flowering in the baroque, delivering a sublime musical experience true to the composer's intention, through a contemporary visual lens.

“… time suspended itself for a moment so that truth and beauty could merge.”
