Officially the leading cultural outdoor event in Australia, Beechworth's Opera In The Alps have now changed the date to March and extended the festival to seven days.

This huge event will now start in Autumn on Sunday March 8th and finish on Saturday the 14th with a mid-afternoon outdoor feast of seasonal, local produce and wines and the signature Opera in the Alps performance among Baarmutha Park’s spectacular stands of mannifera eucalyptus.

Director Graeme Wall said the heat conditions in the past have an effect on many aspects of the festival.

“These conditions pose real challenges for our performers, audiences, suppliers, contractors and Indigo Shire Council staff, local community organisations and the many volunteers who help us to produce the scholars’ school and our performances,” he said.

The changes also include separating Opera in the Alps from its long-associated Opera Scholars Australia summer school.

Tickets will go on sale through Eventbrite in July.
