Following her sensational WASO debut in 2018, conductor Karina Canellakis returns with Mahler's magnificent Fifth, a symphony that embraces a world of human emotions from despair, longing, triumph, and anguish, to tenderness. At its heart is the famous Adagietto, Mahler's outpouring of love to his new wife, Alma, expressed in music of overwhelming beauty. UPDATE 1 June - Karina Canellakis is unable to travel to Australia this year, so Asher Fisch will step in to conduct the concerts featuring Mahler's Symphony No 5.

Opera Australia brings to Perth the much-loved West Side Story, inspired by Romeo and Juliet. Set in the mid 1950s in New York City, the musical explores the rivalry between the Jets and the Sharks, two teenage street gangs of different ethnic backgrounds. Tony, a former member of the Jets falls in love with Maria, the sister of Bernardo, the leader of the Sharks. The dark theme, sophisticated music, extended dance scenes, and focus on social problems marked a turning point in musical theatre. Memorable songs include ''Something''s Coming'', ''Maria'', ''Tonight'' and ''Somewhere''.
