West Australian Opera is returning to the Valley of the Giants for another spectacular performance this year.

Part of the proceeds from the Concert for Conservation in December will go to a local conservation group.

Renowned performers Paul O’Neill, Mark Alderson, Ashlyn Timms and Katja Webb will be accompanied by musical director Tommaso Pollio, who has put together a spectacular program of well-known Puccini, Verdi and Mozart works.

Parks and Wildlife Service acting regional manager Brad Barton said the concert was an opport-unity to give back to the local communities who continued to play a key role in making the Tree Top Walk a success.

“The event will deliver an economic boost to the local economies, with hundreds of people coming to the area to be part of this extravaganza,” he said.

“While it is a paid event, there will be free courtesy buses leaving from Denmark and Walpole to avoid traffic and parking congestion and we encourage people to take advantage of this service.

“We have also arranged for specially allocated local tickets to go on sale one week prior to the main release.”

The trees on the drive into the opera will also be lit up in orange lighting to promote the State Government’s 16 Days in WA campaign to stop violence against women.

Local tickets are on sale and can be purchased online at www.eventopia.co/regionalopera.

The concert will be held on December 1, with gates opening at 5pm for a 7pm performance.
