Arts Minister Senator Mitch Fifield has announced the release of the National Opera Review discussion paper by a review panel.

In a major review of Australian opera, a panel chaired by Dr Helen Nugent AO has delivered an extensive analysis of the four major opera companies funded by the Australian Government.

The National Opera Review was commissioned by the Government to consider the financial viability, artistic vibrancy and audience access of Opera Australia, Opera Queensland, State Opera of South Australia and West Australian Opera.

The National Opera Review discussion paper outlines a range of options for addressing the major issues facing the companies.

Interested parties are encouraged to engage with the review and provide their submissions to the review panel.
