A Night with Opera Queensland
Four of Queensland’s favourite artists – soprano Emily Burke, mezzo soprano Victoria Lambourn, tenor Bradley Daley, baritone Shaun Brown – will take audiences on an adventure through some of opera’s most memorable scenes and solos. Conceived for smaller venues across Queensland, 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 and favourite characters from operas including Carmen, Madama 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.
For the finale of the show the ensemble in glamorous evening dress will perform a selection of popular melodies including one song exclusive to each community pre-selected via a local campaign in each location.
