Opera & Classical Music Tours
lovingly designed ….and personally hosted

Soprano Jennifer Parish and baritone Stewart Cameron welcome you to their premium tours for lovers of opera, classical music and ”the good life.’  A delight in sharing our passions of music and travel saw the birth of Music Lovers Tours in 2012, a boutique travel company based in Australia. We specialise in group tours for independent, like-minded people, offering only three or four of our unique, keenly-anticipated tours each year. Our tailor-made tours are unrivalled, with every aspect of travel, from hotels and restaurants to visits and performances, booked personally, direct with suppliers. This ensures smooth running and consistently high standards. Excellent value for money is a further benefit. It is no surprise that our tours boast an extremely high percentage of repeat clients.

In addition to performances, each of our Opera & Classical Music Tours features a sparkling itinerary taking in various attractions and tours relating both to music and to broader fascinations in the cities, towns and regions visited. Destinations in Europe and Asia are offered, with Italy a much-loved speciality. A ‘jewel in the crown’ annual tour is ‘Viva Verdi & La Scala.’ It takes in the main performances in the world-acclaimed Festival Verdi in Parma, explores the life of Verdi, Pavarotti and other greats and also includes opera at La Scala, Milan and La Fenice, Venice.

We have excellent relationships with the various Opera Houses and theatres featured. It is a privilege to accompany our clients to performances in some of the greatest opera houses in the world. Observing their excitement on entering the theatre and settling into excellent seats is great reward for our hard work and relationship building.

Our tours are now so popular, clients avoid missing out by ‘Reserving a Place’ well before tours go on sale. Every tour offered is ‘guaranteed departure,’ and they always sell-out!

In the planning are several new tours, including Historic Singapore, Musical Melbourne and Carnevale in Venice. These cover the period from March 2024 onwards. Any questions ? click here to visit our Frequently Asked Questions or click here to see our Current Tours brochure
