Lyndon Terracini’s final season is announced. Heavy with international singing and conducting talent, it serves, he believes, to draw a line beneath his 13-year tenure and the financial and reputational pressures heaped upon Opera Australia during the pandemic.

Among the singers booked for concert performances are tenor Jonas Kaufmann; sopranos Ermonela Jaho, Lise Lindstrom, Jessica Pratt and Amber Wagner; Wagner specialist Stefan Vinke; the legendary bass Ferruccio Furlanetto and leading US tenor Michael Fabiano.
