Opera Queensland will bring local flavour
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.
