Young Leaders Circle

Presented in partnership with Herbert Smith Freehills.

West Australian Opera and Herbert Smith Freehills are proud to launch year three of the Young Leaders Circle.

In 2020, we will explore Cultural Connections – how the arts and culture enable people to come together to share an experience, to develop
personal and professional networks and to connect with each other.

Join notable Perth leaders and West Australian Opera artists for special events where you will have the opportunity to connect with the arts
industry, the art form and other young professionals.

Members of the Young Leaders Circle will also receive two VIP A-reserve tickets to West Australian Opera’s performance of Cavalleria rusticana
& Pagliacci on 23 July which includes a pre-show reception.


Connecting with the arts industry

Meet West Australian Opera Board members in an informal setting, giving you the chance to ask them about their professional journey and
personal experience in the arts industry through volunteering on an arts board.

WHEN: 6pm Wednesday 20 May
WHERE: Herbert Smith Freehills


Connecting with the art form

To understand the connection between artists and audiences join us as we hear from Margrete Helgeby Chaney, rehearsal director of Cavalleria
rusticana & Pagliacci and Rebecca Lang, Conductor of Cavalleria rusticana & Pagliacci. Learn about the show and gain an insight into the two-way exchange between artist and audience.

WHEN: 6.00pm Thursday 16 July
WHERE: Herbert Smith Freehills


Connecting with your peers

Bring a friend along to our final event of the year. Join us for a sundowner and gain a deeper understanding of the importance of connecting others with arts and culture.
