A Night With Opera Queensland
Join Opera Queensland stars on an adventure through Carmen, Madama Butterfly, Rigoletto, and Don Giovanni balanced by lighter, popular pieces along with plenty of anecdotes, laughs, and good times. Come along to experience the wonder, magic and joy of opera at close range.
Featuring OperaQ favourites – Emily Burke, Victoria Lambourn, Rosario La Spina and Shaun Brown – the performance will mix shining moments of operatic splendour with edgy cabaret-style performance at close range.
The artists greet and mingle with the audience on arrival, before they gradually draw them in to a “rehearsal”, sharing the stories of the scenes they will perform. Steadily the stage is transformed by opera performers in magnificent costumes and a splash of theatre magic.
Come prepared to enjoy a grand “opera house” environment with iconic characters from Carmen, Madam Butterfly, Rigoletto and Don Giovanni. These characters will appear in unexpected places, singing to a full bodied accompaniment of live piano enhanced by digital and pre-recorded orchestral backing. Featuring popular, lighter pieces to provide plenty of laughter throughout, contrasted with breathtaking and timeless elements of sheer “swoon” and vocal beauty, it will be a musical evening to remember.
