Opera in the Vineyards back 2016

Opera in the Vineyards 2017

The renowned Opera in the Vineyards has been postponed again for 2015 and is set to make a comeback in October 2016 at Wyndham Estate in New South Wales’ Hunter Valley.

“The large domed stage sits dramatically at the centre of an expansive grass amphitheatre between the historic winery and the peaceful Hunter River,” says public relations and operations manager Stephen Guilbaud-Oulton of the inspirational setting. “The orchestra and the artists soar into their first few bars to the backdrop of a spectacular sunset over the vineyards. Some guests like to dress up, which adds a real sense of fun.”
