Karl Petrie is the Director of Renaissance Tours. When it was founded in 1996, it specialised in a tour to the Chicago Lyric Opera’s production of Wagner’s Ring Cycle for the opera-enthusiasts and friends of Opera Australia. Over time, Renaissance Tours established a firm relationship with Opera Australia and now offers more than 100 opera tours.
Renaissance Tours strives to improve the quality of tour services by working with international and Australia academics, art critics, curators and staff. In 1999, the first domestic and international ballet tours were offered. In 2001, a programme was designed to feature performances of orchestras, conductors, and soloists from around the world. The first tour to Russia and the Ukraine was provided in 2002 for the members of the Art Gallery Society of NSW.
Today, Renaissance Tours offers Garden Discoveries, Short Breaks, and Cultural Voyages by sea and river. These are the greatest opportunity to experience unique, expert-guided cultural tours. Karl and Renaissance Tours provide positive and uplifting experience through giving a sightseeing opportunity for individuals to travel. Join them in experiencing cultural highlights of Opera, Music, Ballet, Art, Gardens and Cruises.
