Olive Pink Opera

Concert or Performance

16 Sep 2021 to 18 Sep 2021 Daily Event

The Olive Pink Opera, produced by the Olive Pink Botanic Garden, is a showcase event of the Desert Song Festival. It will be performed under the stars in the garden that Olive Pink created.

Come and experience the magic of this ground-breaking event that will be a first for opera in Australia, a first for Alice Springs and a first for the Desert Song Festival.

This new Opera celebrates the extraordinary life of Olive Pink. A compelling, truly Australian story, the opera explores the life of a remarkable woman, her relationships with Arrernte and Warlpiri peoples and her outspoken advocacy for Aboriginal rights in Central Australia. The Opera is the story of the last decades of Olive Pink’s life when she and Warlpiri man Johnny Jampitjinpa created what is now the Olive Pink Botanic Garden. The Opera is a reconciliation work, based on stories from both Aboriginal and local non-Aboriginal people from Alice Springs. Through the telling of these stories, connections will be strengthened between communities in Alice Springs and indeed, the Australian community.

The Olive Pink Opera features the Central Australian Aboriginal Women’s Choir and Alice Springs artists and musicians who, together with Alice Springs and internationally acclaimed master musicians, will present the rich heritage of Aboriginal culture and opera to create a transformative arts experience and a new version of opera in Australia.
