“Hit rock musical The Who’s Tommy finally makes its long-awaited Australian premiere at the iconic Palais Theatre in February 2022,” said Victorian Opera’s CEO Elizabeth Hill-Cooper.

“From what we witnessed during our original rehearsal period earlier this year, our production is going to be epic!”

The Who’s 1969 rock opera album, Tommy, was revolutionary and sold over 20 million copies. From it came this one-of-a-kind musical that received five Tony Awards, three Olivier Awards, and a Grammy.

This story of hope and triumph over adversity will shake your soul with its unforgettable soundtrack.

With music and lyrics by The Who’s guitarist and vocalist Pete Townshend, the timeless score features smash hits such as Pinball Wizard, I’m Free and Acid Queen.

The Who’s Tommy is set to supercharge Melbourne in Summer 2022. Tickets are now on sale. For more information, visit: for details.
