Chris van Tuinen is a conductor, pianist and music director and is currently responsible for the programming at WA Opera. Opera is a demanding industry, requiring hours of training, practice and rehearsal time for those involved. The roles of singers and creative teams in a modern opera company are diverse, but everyone must work together. Ever changing trends and needs in opera present a challenge for those in management who need to balance the importance of both artistic aspiration and financial risk. Come along to find out more.

Giselle, the much-loved 178-year-old classical ballet, explores a tale of impossible love, vengeful ghosts and ultimate forgiveness. Peasant girl Giselle, beautiful and innocent, falls for a prince in disguise. When she learns he is engaged to a noblewoman, her grief and shock send her mad. Dying, her spirit joins the "Wilis" who seek revenge for the betrayal of women. This romantic era ballet stands the test of time - maybe because first love and heartbreak resonates with us all. Book before 15 April.
