Opera is committed to engaging with audiences during this challenging
time. We want to find ways to bring the magic of opera to you.
Carolyn Chard AM, Executive Director, West Australian Opera said “Ghost
Light Opera will enable the experience of beautiful music to transcend
from the stage of His Majesty’s Theatre and into your home wherever you
are. A light – a ghost light – is left on the stage when the theatre is
unoccupied and would otherwise be completely dark.
In a difficult environment with limited social gathering and
isolation measures in place, West Australian Opera’s Ghost Light Opera
will provide a platform for everyone to engage with the state opera
company despite empty seats and closed venues. We can still connect with
each other, we can still share the power of music and try to help heal
the soul in challenging times” she said.
We are grateful to our partners, donors and government who continue
to support us in this time of crisis. Thank you the Department of Local
Government, Sport and Cultural Industries, Australia Council, Perth
Theatre Trust, His Majesty’s Theatre, Wesfarmers Arts, Lotterywest, City
of Perth, Minderoo Foundation and Healthway for their ongoing support
of West Australian Opera.
