Access All Areas: Alice through the Opera Glass Livestream Program (Metro)

Victorian Opera


"This was a wonderful experience for our students. Many of them would never have and may never again, see a performance like this. Thank you for making this experience one that the children will remember for a long time."
Teacher, Melton

"My children felt like they had a connection with the performers and musicians from viewing the livestream and chatted with some of the orchestra members before the show started. It was a brilliant experience and they couldn't stop talking about it!"
Teacher, Berwick

Peer into the magic looking glass and come on a fantastical journey with Alice and the White Rabbit. Leave Wonderland behind and step into an alternative opera universe, a marvellous world for curious minds that will fascinate students and teachers alike.

An imagination as abundant as our heroine’s is a pre-requisite for this adventure that leaps across boundaries of opera time and space. Follow Alice and the White Rabbit through the corridors of time to meet famous characters from your favourite operas in this wonderfully creative pastiche, which includes music from Bizet, Delibes and Puccini.

Receive four FREE interactive workshops livestreamed directly into the classroom when you book tickets for your students to attend this production at Arts Centre Melbourne in June 2019.
