    Public

    Explore the colour and spectacle of Australian opera and musical theatre, with a special feature on our most celebrated divas.

    Australia has a rich tradition of producing and welcoming great women singers. During the 1850s, many of the world's finest singers such as Anna Bishop and Catherine Hayes toured the capital cities and the goldfields. The long line of outstanding 'home-grown' talent included Nellie Stewart, Amy Castles, Gladys Moncrieff, Florence Austral, and of course, La Stupenda, Dame Joan Sutherland.

    You're in the right place to discover our greatest divas and dames.
