Today, Victorian Opera made the difficult decision to postpone their August production of The Who’s Tommy to 2021, with dates to be confirmed.
Their one night only concert of Die tote Stadt has been cancelled due to travel restrictions limiting artists from flying to Australia.
Read on in a statement from the company below:
In view of ensuring the safety of Victorian Opera’s community of audiences, artists and staff, decisions have been made regarding August 2020 performances.
The Who’s Tommy at the Palais Theatre, St Kilda, scheduled from 14-22 August 2020 has been postponed until August 2021.
The one-night-only concert of Korngold’s Die tote Stadt at Arts Centre Melbourne, Hamer Hall on Friday 21 August has been cancelled due to continued travel restrictions, mandatory quarantine periods and the Department of Immigration advising there will be no international travel visa applications accepted at this time.
Our ticketing team will contact all subscribers and ticket holders for affected performances. We appreciate your patience with this process.
