Opera Queens­land will bring lo­cal flavour

Maroochy Weekly - - LIFE WHAT’S ON -

YOU can ex­pect a de­light­ful sur­prise when A Night with Opera Queens­land comes to town on Au­gust 29.

OperaQ’s new, ex­pan­sive re­gional tour will of­fer some­thing unique, with a spe­cial all-star show blend­ing mo­ments of shin­ing op­er­atic splen­dour with the­atri­cal­ity, back­stage hu­mour and show­biz sass, all per­formed at close range in some of Queens­land’s most unique venues.

Fea­tur­ing some of the state’s most adored artists, in­clud­ing so­prano Emily Burke, tenor Bradley Da­ley and bari­tone Shaun Brown, the tour will in­clude pop­u­lar, lighter pieces, snappy Broad­way favourites and tra­di­tional grand opera.

The quar­tet of singers will bring to life some of the most pop­u­lar op­er­atic char­ac­ters from Madama But­ter­fly, Rigoletto and Don Gio­vanni, in full cos­tume and with at­mo­spheric light­ing, while im­mer­sive per­for­mances will spill from the stage to the au­di­ence.

OperaQ Artis­tic Di­rec­tor Lindy Hume said au­di­ences for A Night with Opera Queens­land will en­joy meet­ing these opera artists in a sur­pris­ing range of modes, from re­laxed back­stage mode to the high drama of a grand opera per­for­mance.

“A Night with Opera Queens­land will evolve from a pur­pose­fully chaotic open­ing to cul­mi­nate in grand op­er­atic splen­dour wor­thy of any stage,” Ms Hume said.

The Events Cen­tre, Caloun­dra hosts the event on Au­gust 29.
