UWA School of Music presents the 2017 Callaway Lecture : Richard Mills AM: Opera in the Mirror of History, Evolution or Extinction Other events...
This year, the Institute of Advanced Studies and the School of Music celebrate the 50th anniversary of UWA’s tertiary education partner, West Australian Opera in inviting Dr Richard Mills to deliver the 2017 Callaway Lecture.

Richard Mills was artistic director of West Australian Opera for 15 years between 1997 and 2012 and is one of Australia’s most prolific and internationally recognised composers who pursues a diverse career as a composer, conductor and artistic director.

He has held numerous prestigious posts, and received many scholarships, fellowships and awards including an AM, in 1999. He is currently Artistic Director of Victorian Opera, and has previously been Artistic Director of the West Australian Opera 1997–2012, Director of the Australian Music Project for the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra 2002–2008 and Musica Viva’s Composer of the Year in 2008.

Richard regularly conducts the leading orchestras and opera companies of Australia and has an extensive discography of orchestral works including his own compositions.

In this year’s lecture, Dr Mills will explore contemporary possibilities for the art form of opera, via an analysis of the origins of the art form and an inspection of a sequence of transformatory moments in its history.
