Intimately MADE Performance
Epic, digital OPERA

Chamber Made Opera exists at the very edge of opera, developing new ways of encountering the world with audiences. Passionate about investigating and re-imagining what opera can be, the company creates challenging work for today’s digital age. Our works are immediate, intimate, collaborative, interdisciplinary and experimental.

Chamber Made Opera remains the only Australian company exclusively committed to the creation and presentation of original experimental chamber operas. Engaged with the cross-disciplinary foundations of the operatic form, our opera re-imagines ways in which musical composition, sound, the voice, performance, design and architecture can converge. Since 1988 the company has been recognised for continually challenging the artform, bringing together outstanding creative teams, being unbound by convention, and taking inspired artistic risks. Chamber Made Opera is a nimble and sustainable organisation that is shaped by its art and open to a diverse range of musical expression and performance practice.

We provoke audiences.
We support artists from myriad artforms and backgrounds.
We create art of our time and place.

The company’s history is detailed in our 25 Years Interview Project, Production Archive and as part of Art Centre Melbourne’s Performing Arts Collection.
