Green Room Award Nominations For 2016

Noinations for the 2016 Green Room Awards have just been announced. The Green Room Awards are Melbourne’s performing arts awards. Since 1982 they have been awarded in recognition of excellence in a variety of categories including Cabaret, Dance, Musical Theatre, Opera, Theatre and Alternative and Hybrid Performance productions.

Yes – it’s a Melbourne accolade, but here in Sydney we have enjoyed many of these performances – so congratulations to the nominees and we look forward to the awards ceremony to be held in Melbourne on March 27, 2017. Opera Australia, unsurprisingly dominates the nominations with its 2016 Melbourne Ring Cycle alone, garnering 11 nominations for its four operas. However, smaller companies like Melbourne Opera and Victorian Opera have also earned well-deserved recognition for their work.
