CitiOpera’s success was fostered in a foundation of dedicated artists. Today CitiOpera strives to pass on those traditions and nurture the pool of Australia’s new and emerging talent.

CitiOpera Appoints New Artistic Director

Following the departure of Dr Joseph Talia, CitiOpera is delighted to announce the appointment of Trevor Jones to the position of Artistic Director.

Trevor takes the artistic helm of the company at a very exciting time, as CitiOpera embarks on a number of ambitious and innovative projects. The 2014/2015 Season includes a brand new touring production of La Boheme which will be performed exclusively in non-theatre spaces, a concert series of comic opera highlights, an evening exploring the genius of Mascagni, featuring an "Unwrapped" performance of Cavalleria Rusticana and a new production of Gianni Schicchi. More details of these productions will follow the Season Launch in August.

Trevor Jones' wide range of talents and experience will help mould, not just these productions, but the future artistic output of CitiOpera.

Trevor's busy schedule includes running Choristry, an exceptional vocal ensemble and teaching at the Victorian College of the Arts. Additionally, he is the Associate Musical Director for the Victorian State Schools Spectacular and numerous tours of China.

Trevor has experience in a wide range of musical styles include musical theatre and cabaret, giving him unique insight into how audiences can be engaged and inspired in different ways.
The Board of CitiOpera is delighted to welcome Trevor into the company and looks forward to a prosperous and creative new era at the company.
