Our History

View information about our past Prductions and Concerts

Newcastle Festival Opera Co-Operative Ltd was formed in 2006 to provide staged performance opportunities for young Australian singers and instrumentalists as well as production teams and theater technicians. 

Based in its home city, NFOpera performs in Newcastle, the Hunter Region and Regional NSW. 

The founding team consists of Ghillian Sullivan; principal Operatic Soprano, and Dr Ian Cook; University Lecturer, Conductor and Clarinetist. Their 60 years combined experience in performing and teaching enables NFO to offer mentorship and artist development through practical application of skills in staged performances.

Board members serve in a capacity where consideration is given to their ability and experience to fulfill the many areas of expertise necessary for the success of an entrepreneurial Music Production company.

The greater skills gained by NFO artists through our productions, bridges the gap between tertiary training and the level of expertise necessary to enter the wider Australian or overseas arts arenas.
