Commencing their stellar main stage season for 2021 is Lorelei, a contemporary reimagining of the myth of the Siren, combining cabaret, burlesque and opera at QPAC’s Concert Hall from 6 to 13 March 2021.
“Lorelei was scheduled to open our 2020 season and we are delighted audiences have another opportunity to see this fun, new Australian work, sung in English, with its original cast of Ali McGregor, Antoinette Halloran and Dimity Shepherd,” said Patrick Nolan, Opera Queensland’s Artistic Director & CEO.
The new Australian opera features music by Julian Langdon, Casey Bennetto and Gillian Cosgriff and is presented by arrangement with Victorian Opera.
Hilarity is guaranteed in The Marriage of Figaro, Mozart’s comedy for the ages, performed at QPAC’s Playhouse from 15 to 31 July 2021.
When it premiered in 1786 audiences were intrigued as they watched real people wrestling with feelings of desire, betrayal, remorse, unbridled lust … Feelings they knew well themselves.
Rising stars Sofia Troncoso and Jeremey Kleeman shine alongside soprano Eva Kong and baritone José Carbó in this cheeky tale of friendship, deceit and devotion, directed by Mr Nolan.
Capping off 2021’s main stage program is Verdi’s blockbuster Aida, co-produced with Opera Australia and playing QPAC’s Lyric Theatre from 3 to 19 November 2021.
New digital staging technology and opulent costumes combine to create a visually sensational production featuring Australian soprano Natalie Aroyan in the title role.
Subscriptions to Opera Queensland’s Season 2021 are available on sale now.
