WA Opera Presents ‘The Nightingale’ – COVID UPDATE – The Nightingale Cancelled
Following the WA Premier’s announcement yesterday, we regret to inform you that despite our best efforts, the rescheduled Wednesday performance of The Nightingale has been cancelled.
We apologise for any disappointment or inconvenience. It’s obviously been a tough few days for everyone and we’re sorry to see the show cancelled after the cast and crew have put in so much work. Unfortunately, the 20 person government restriction on Theatres and Entertainment venues makes it nonviable to proceed with the show. We hope you understand the situation and appreciate your patience.
At this stage all other shows are still going ahead but we will of course update you as soon as there are any updates. Thank you for your support and understanding.
If you have previously purchased tickets, full refunds will be issued in the next few days.

The Nightingale harnesses the next generation of WA talent, sharing a magical story that will remind you of the beauty of nature and the power of friendship.
The Nightingale is an opera for young people, performed by young people, for all to enjoy. Based on the story by Hans Christian Andersen, the opera tells of an Emperor who is enchanted by the singing of a nightingale in his garden. The Emperor convinces the nightingale to sing for him but when he is gifted a mechanical nightingale, he becomes obsessed with his new toy and the real nightingale flies away.
Struck down by illness and with his mechanical nightingale now broken, the Emperor begs the nightingale to return and sing for him again. She agrees, but on the condition that she is allowed to sing for all the people.
