This program celebrates 40 years of the association between ABC Television and Opera Australia, bringing the cream of performers, conductors and designers together in a gala performance.
The program incorporates unique archive footage and stunning highlights of performances from one of the earliest recordings in 1960 of Mozart's The Marriage of Figaro to Baz Luhrmann's production of Puccini's La Bohème.
