A NIGHT WITH OPERA QUEENSLAND PRESENTED BY THE EVENTS CENTRE AND OPERA QUEENSLAND

Some of Opera Queensland’s favourite artists – including soprano Emily Burke, tenor Bradley Daley and baritone Shaun Brown – will take audiences on an adventure through some of opera’s most memorable scenes and solos.

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, 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. 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 structured to suit the circumstances of each location.
