Newcastle Festival Opera

Based in its home city, NFO 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.

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.
Our Schools’ program is creative, educational and inventive, engaging students with characters from Opera, such as Hansel and Gretel, Carmen and the Toreador, and the fantastic world of Mozart’s The Magic Flute.

NFO can also provide individual artists, ensembles, big bands or orchestra for your special event or private function - small or large.
