Opera in the Park is the brainchild of Peta Blyth and their first performance was held in a paddock at her family farming property in Inverell on March 22nd, 2002. This inaugural concert was a smash hit and featured not only Peta herself, but also tenor David Hamilton, pianist David Miller and flautist Paul Curtis.
Celebrating their 10th anniversary in 2011, this extraordinary event featured an orchestra of twenty professionals, seven of Australia’s best opera singers, a pianist, didgeridoo soloist and a fireworks display! Since this momentous anniversary, Opera in the Paddock has gone from strength to strength and has become an important regional event bringing together friends and family from all over Australia, as well as many international visitors.
