Part cabaret, part opera, all seduction

All aboard! You are on a ship heading towards the notorious rock where so many sailors have met their fates. Can you resist the alluring siren song?

Metamorphosis Editor's Pick

Metamorphosis

Morbidly fascinating theatre

Gregor is a broken man, exhausted by eternal work and an ungrateful family. Until one morning, he awakes, and is not a man at all. Kafka’s grotesque tragedy of a man turned insect is an engrossing story. Music adds an edgy intensity: Metamorphosis as opera is riveting, shattering, morbidly fascinating theatre. Brian Howard’s score is percussive, inventive and courageous. Twelve musicians and six singers ratchet up the horror and pathos of this work: a story of social alienation in a modern, inhuman world. Director Tama Matheson and designer Mark Thompson focus their creative talents on an unusual stage. This chamber opera will take place in the Opera Australia scenery workshop — that magical space where castles, tombs and salons rise from piles of plywood. This season, it becomes a performance space, where a talented cast perform this contemporary piece. Simon Lobelson performs the demanding role of Gregor and Paul Fitzsimon conducts.

Madama Butterfly Editor's Pick

Madama Butterfly

Puccini’s sublime opera

Experience the ravishing romance of Madama Butterfly in a bold new production by Australia’s most famous choreographer, Graeme Murphy. Enchanted by the beauty of Japan, the American naval officer Pinkerton takes a young geisha for his wife. The innocent Madame Butterfly falls helplessly, hopelessly in love. But every ship must return to its shore, and Pinkerton returns home, leaving his bride behind. Butterfly waits patiently for her husband to return, and when he comes at last, both lovers have a surprise in store. This long-awaited reimagining uses the same incredible technology that wowed audiences in Aida, where towering flexible LED screens form a dynamic backdrop filled with moving images. Puccini’s sumptuous score includes the hit aria ‘Un bel di’. See it if you like a good tearjerker, Miss Saigon, and stunning sets and costumes.
