Festival of Outback Opera

Opera Queensland’s Festival of Outback Opera returns to Winton, Longreach, Barcaldine, Blackall, Tambo and Windorah from 18 – 27 May 2022.

Set in Queensland’s iconic Outback, the Festival celebrates the wonder of opera under an endless sky. This year's festival is headlined by Greta Bradman and Kang Wang with music direction by Dane Lam, leading the UQ Pulse Chamber Orchestra.

The 2022 Festival of Outback Opera features two spectacular open-sky concerts at Winton and Longreach, four performances of the regional tour of The Sopranos, Opera Queensland’s popular community singalongs Sing Sing Sing and a program of community events and activations in quintessentially Outback locations.
