K Shed, Queen Victoria Market

For one special night of the year, market stalls of the beloved Queen Victoria Market will once again be packed away as K Shed is transformed into a magnificent opera house.

Opera in the Market, with its unique style and class, celebrates its 22nd year in 2020.

See the shining stars of Opera Scholars Australia take centre stage alongside Principal Artists Greta Bradman, Andrew Goodwin, Chloe Harris - Scholar of the Year 2019 and the finalists for Opera Scholar of the Year 2020. They will be joined on stage by Symphony Australis, conducted by Guy Noble.

Sample fine wines and tasty dishes from a selection of Melbourne’s famous food vans while you experience the drama of some of the world’s favourite opera highlights.

For the ultimate Opera in the Market experience, the Operetta Lounge is presented by our partners, Fred & Ginger Catering. It’s the perfect place to entertain clients, relax with a group of friends or have a romantic night as a couple, all while enjoying a premium food and beverage experience.
