About the show

West Australian Opera is committed to sharing the power of music even in challenging times. While we’re away from the stage, we’re working in the Ghost Light bringing digital innovations to our audiences.

The stage is dark, but the conversation is just beginning. West Australian Opera invites you to join the  WAO Podcast series hosted by Music Director Chris van Tuinen. Each month Chris will welcome special guests to discuss all things opera; from behind the scenes moments to meet the artists spotlights.

We will release a podcast every month starting 14 April 2020 on WAO’s website and social media platforms.
