Lastek and State Opera South Australia are delighted to announce the continuation of their partnership agreement for 2021.

Lastek has a long tradition of support for local arts and artists in South Australia. This year, we decided to extend our involvement by becoming a Partner in support of State Opera South Australia.

We are thrilled to have the opportunity to work with State Opera South Australia, and look forward to some exceptional musical performances in Adelaide this year.
