West Australian Opera celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2017.


Opera ‘tells stories’ and I invite you to submit your anecdotes, memories and stories.


This will capture some of the history of the company in ‘your own words’ and build a picture of Fifty Years of Opera in Western Australia (1967-2017).


All stories welcomed and story prompts may include your anecdotes as an audience member, singer, performer, chorus member, member of the orchestra, the theatre, or the company, backstage stories, front of house stories, theatre stories, rehearsal stories and so on


Stories can be submitted below or emailed to



Your story may be published on West Australian Opera’s website, social media pages, print material including programs or brochures, and other digital and print media. By submitting your story you agree that permission is granted by you to publish in this way.
