Supporting State Opera South Australia for over forty years, The Friends of State Opera are led by a dedicated committee of volunteers that present an annual program of events to support State Opera and help to ensure the future of opera in South Australia.

In 2019 we are entering a new partnership with State Opera investing particularly in their special education program – the inaugural Opera Winter School –culminating in performances of Martin Wesley Smith’s Boojum!

In the coming season, The Friends will continue to host the ever-popular Opera Voices Introductions at the State Opera Studio, support local emerging opera singers and hold fundraising events.
