“Eating, loving, singing and digesting are, in truth, the four acts of the comic opera known as life, and they pass like bubbles of a bottle of champagne. Whoever lets them break without having enjoyed them is a complete fool.” Rossini

You are invited to a gala evening of music, food and wine at Voyager Estate. Featuring masterpieces from some of opera’s greatest composers including Verdi, Puccini, Wagner and Mozart performed by artists Teddy Tahu Rhodes, Antoinette Halloran and Paul O’Neill.

This exclusive and intimate evening will be a six course feast for all the senses. Voyager premium wines, personally selected by Voyager’s sommelier, are the starting point with the perfect complement of music and food designed by Voyager’s head chef and West Australian Opera’s head of music. Each course will be the perfect match of opera aria, music, wine and food.
