Three Tales

27 October
A Live-Streamed Event

About Three Tales

Following Victorian Opera’s first live-streamed event The Darkest Night, the company continues its exploration of the digital sphere with a rare glimpse into the process of developing a new opera. In this unique event, you’re invited into our rehearsal room as highlights of three new Australian works are performed after a week long workshop.


Based on Flaubert’s Trois Contes or Three Tales, leading Australian composers Stefan Cassomenos, Dermot Tutty, and Katie Noonan and Zac Hurren will each interpret one tale as the basis for a short new work. Lauded ensemble Plexus provide accompaniment to specialist singers.


These three chamber operas are to be staged in Victorian Opera’s 2019 Season. This is an exclusive insight into the creative process of Australia’s leading commissioner and producer of new opera and your chance to offer feedback that directly contributes to Victorian Opera's 2019 Season.
