About the event

Sung in English with surtitles.

The obsessive explorer, the Australian outback and the lover he leaves behind.
Voss dreams of exploring this uncharted continent. But the land won’t be conquered easily. As Voss and his men suffer from exhaustion and exposure, he seeks strength from his connection with Laura.

Our nation’s history is filled with ill-fated tales of men pursuing their destiny in the harsh Australian outback. One of those was a German explorer called Ludwig Leichhardt, immortalised as Voss in Patrick White’s novel.

From the famed Australian novel came ‘the great Australian opera’, only to fade into obscurity in the 1990s. Now, Victorian Opera revives this watershed piece of Australiana in a one-night-only event.

Follow Voss’ love story with the outback and a young woman in colonial Sydney. Let’s celebrate our music and heritage.
