Puccini's operas reach deep into your soul and transform you through their humanity and beautiful music.

They’re still amongst the most-performed today: La Bohème, Turandot, Tosca and Madama Butterfly.

No other composer captures the rush of true love, the thrill of discovering something new, or the force of tragedy like Puccini.

2024 marks the centenary of the great composer’s passing. To celebrate his contribution to opera, we’re performing a concert of his finest music.

Homegrown superstar Nicole Car and one of the world’s most popular tenors, Joseph Calleja, are joined by a fabulous cast of singers, including Peter Coleman-Wright AO and Julie Lea Goodwin.

Swoon to the arias and duets you know and love, alongside lesser-known gems from his extraordinary operas, performed by some of our greatest singers along with the extraordinary Orchestra Victoria.
