Pinchgut Opera

pinchgut.gifPinchgut Opera was set up to offer Sydney audiences a different experience of opera.

It presents opera in more intimate settings, where the audience is closer and more involved than is possible in a conventional opera house. The most important element in Pinchgut's productions is the music and the music's immediate impact on the audience. Pinchgut stages operas that are not regularly heard, but deserve to be.

Chamber opera has a special magic: an intimacy and immediacy not found in the more elaborate productions of grand opera. Most major cities of the world have a chamber opera company. Sydney is big enough and important enough as a living arts city to have its own.

The founders of Pinchgut Opera are a group of professional musicians, arts administrators and music lovers who discovered they shared a dream to build something different in the musical life of Sydney. Pinchgut Opera uses mostly young Australian singers, players, directors and designers, creating more professional opportunities for Australian artists and more chances for audiences to see their work.
