The Programme collection documents the rich history of all performance types represented in the Collection and provides detailed information to researchers about repertoire, public taste, performers and venues spanning the 19th century to the present day in Australia.
Programmes are an informative resource in the Performing Arts Collection, with over 12700 folders in the General Series arranged primarily by production title - each containing many individual programmes. These popular souvenirs of performances also appear throughout the separate collections of personalities and companies.
We continue to collect the major national companies - with a special emphasis on resident ensembles at Arts Centre Melbourne; including the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, The Australian Ballet, Opera Australia, and Melbourne Theatre Company to name just a few.
Explore the production titles online by searching this site for "Programme Collection - General Series". Catalogue records for Programme Folders are intentionally brief accommodate continual growth and expansion of the collection. The Programme Folders can be easily accessed through our Research Service for more detail.
