Season: 2015

In 2015 Gilbert and Sullivan Opera Victoria is celebrating its 80th Birthday, and to get the year started in fine style, we presented The Merry Widow (at the Alexander Theatre) as our first show, followed by Cavalleria Rusticana and The Contrabandista at Knox Community Arts Centre and Dunolly, and then Patience at Darebin Arts & Entertainment Centre, Dunolly and Mount Beauty.

This year, with the number of venues we are using, there will not be a subscription offer.

We are also excited to be offering Business Sponsorship and Premium Membership packages as part of our push to keep the Gilbert and Sullivan Society strong for at least another 80 years. Your support is needed.
