Throughout the year, Melba scholars and alumni are engaged in a variety of performances, both public and private. On this page you will find links and further information on our public events, which we encourage you to attend. Our public events are fantastic opportunites to hear our talented singers and repetiteurs in action, and often come with the chance to meet and learn more about each scholar following the performance. Our private events are not listed here, but more information about Melba Artists’ happenings can be found on our Facebook page and on Libretto – The Melba Opera Trust Journal. Should you wish to engage Melba Artists for your private function, please contact us at We are always happy to discuss event possibilities, and can provide artists across Australia upon request.
