Pacific Opera Victoria Poster Collection

In 2013, Pacific Opera Victoria (POV) staged its 100th production, Verdi's Falstaff. This collection of posters was gathered to celebrate that milestone.

The posters show as much variety as the productions they advertise, drawing on local illustrators, photographers and typographers to convey the flavour of each opera.
