We are delighted to be returning to the Festival Theatre in 2018 to present two major new productions – The Pearl Fishers and The Merry Widow – together with a Gala Concert commemorating the twentieth anniversary of our landmark 1998 production of Wagner’s Ring Cycle. We are also pleased to be associated with the 2018 Adelaide Festival presentation of Brett Dean’s Hamlet, and to co-present the Adelaide debut of one of the world’s greatest coloratura sopranos, Sumi Jo.
