The world class cast will bring the roof down with incredible arias, duets and ensemble pieces from Opera’s most memorable moments. It’s opera as you’ve never seen or heard it before. There are no fancy theatre spaces just amazing voices pulsing around these spectacular buildings.
There is always a touch of Musical Theatre to break up the languages. Artistic director Bruce Edwards noted that many audience members will be newcomers, to opera, who will enjoy the Underground Opera Company’s mix of famous arias, duets and musical theatre numbers.
The company performs regularly in Brisbane’s Underground Opera House with events in mines, tunnels and caves around Australia. Breath taking spaces including The Jenolan Caves in the Blue Mountains and The Capricorn Caves near Rockhampton, as well as above ground in Power stations, on Islands, in Castles and now Christ Church Cathedral and St Peters in Maitland.
