Learn at the Library

Libraries are at the heart of learning within our neighbourhoods. They are powerful community hubs connecting people of all ages in stimulating environments.

West Australian Opera has a range of workshops and talks that are available on demand for local libraries. We invite you to learn, laugh and dream with us as we explore opera through a variety of mediums including hands on workshops and lectures accompanied by live performances.


Adult Learn At The Library talks include:

Introduction to Opera
Opera makes us talk, think, smile, cry, angry, remember and stirs emotions far deeper than words alone.  Let West Australian Opera take you on a whirlwind, global musical journey as we discover the beginnings of opera in Renaissance Florence and how it made its way to our wild west.

It’s Opera not Oprah
Let West Australian Opera take you on a global trip into the magical world of opera and its delicious stories in true Oprah style as we discover its international beginnings and Perth connections. Punctuated by Oprah quotes and giveaways this is a light hearted introduction to opera.

Opera in Popular Culture
Opera is around us every day.  It is in our modern day movies, commercials and cartoons.  How does a centuries old artform continue to live and breathe in a world that is fast paced, instant and disposable?
