OPERA Australia will perform an exclusive concert in the spiritual heart of Australia with Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park and Bruce Munro's Field of Light Uluru as the backdrop.

The event will be held under the stars on Saturday November 2.

During the concert, some of Opera Australia's finest singers will perform famous arias from Bizet, Puccini, Rossini and Verdi, accompanied by a chamber orchestra conducted by Tahu Matheson. As the sun sets over the desert backdrop, the evening will be illuminated by the spellbinding colours of Field of Light Uluru's 50,000 glass spheres.

"Opera Australia is honoured to be presenting our first ever performance at Australia's spiritual centre, on the sacred lands surrounding Uluru," said its artistic director Lyndon Terracini.

"I was so profoundly moved when I first visited - moved by a sense of awe, and spirituality that is palpable, and by the raw beauty of the landscape.

"I knew then that we had an opportunity to create something extraordinary if we could perform in such an incredible atmosphere."

Packages start from $750 per person twin share and include two nights' accommodation at Ayers Rock Resort, breakfast daily, return airport transfers and a ticket to the Opera at Uluru performance.

Guests can also choose to take part in two remarkable dining experiences, the Opera at Uluru Welcome Dinner on Friday November 1 and the Opera at Uluru Starlit Dinner on November 3.
