West Australian Opera and Perth Observatory are proud to partner for a bespoke event that will delight opera lovers and astronomers alike. On the 250th Anniversary of his voyage, join us under the stars to discover who Captain James Cook was, how HMS Endeavour was sailed, why the transit was important and to hear of his encounter with Tupaia, the star navigator.
This will be a perfect introduction to West Australian Opera's world premiere opera concert Star Navigator, composed by Tim Finn, and be a fantastic opportunity to learn more about the meeting of these master mariners, Cook and Tupaia. You'll also have the opportunity to enjoy the Perth Observatory Museum and participate in looking through the telescopes.
Come early with a blanket, chair and a picnic, and have dinner on our back lawn around a lovely bush setting as the sunsets.
Your booking includes:
- Access to Perth Observatory Museum
- Sample piece from the Opera
- Presentation by Arthur Harvey on Cook and the transit of Venus and encounter with Tupaia.
- One object telescope viewing
Please Note: There are no tickets sent out. We have a booking sheet on the night for the event and bus, so you just need to come up on the night and the host/bus driver will ask you for the name the booking was under and then mark you off on the booking sheet.
