City of Perth
City of Perth supports Opera in the City which is a series of projects aimed at engaging people with opera and reducing barriers for participation in opera. Through a series of activations, opera will enliven the City of Perth and enable community members from all walks of like to particpate in cultural life.
Through the power of song and voice WAO aims to reach across social and economic barriers to encourage healthier lives for WA communities. In partnership with Healthway, WAO’s education and community program reaches out across to all corners of the community and the diversity of the program provides opportunities for individuals to connect through the power of the human voice.

Lotterywest's support gives WAO more opportunities to engage our community and provide unique cultural experiences for audiences by reducing barriers to participation and increasing accessibility and engagement with new audiences.
