A little bit of history

Emma Knights Productions

Emma Knights Productions was established in 2013 by South Australian musician Emma Knights (Click HERE to read more about Emma Knights) With this company, Emma creates a world of unique music-based immersive experiences whilst providing opportunities for local visual and performing artists. Emma’s biggest goal is to bring joy and community together.

In 2013, Emma toured with Opera Queensland. Whilst on this tour Emma had a spark that led to the creation of Emma Knights Productions. Emma purchased the sets and costumes after this tour and brought them home (South Australia) to run the opera, Space Encounters in South Australia. To raise funds to cover rehearsal costs to stage the opera, Emma decided to do three fundraising concerts. These concerts, Floating Melodies, became Emma Knights Productions’ flagship series as well as a 2016 SA Tourism Silver Award Recipient.

Emma Knights Productions has created productions of Space Encounters, Swan Lake REMiXED and Pirates of Penzance in many locations and as a result of Emma’s creative brain, new concepts such as Tales of Adventure, Aqua Beats and Haydn Seek exist.
