Opera Queensland presents Are You Lonesome Tonight, their most extensive regional tour in their 40-year history.
Visiting nearly 30 communities and travelling almost 7,000 kilometres, the tour takes over regional Queensland with a celebration of Opera and Country music throughout May and June.
With a cast of young Australian singers including Irena Lysiuk, Marcus Corowa and Jonathan Hickey, Are You Lonesome Tonight features arias and songs by composers such as Puccini, Verdi, Slim Dusty and Dolly Parton, to name just a few.
Come in your jeans and boots or your tuxedos and ballgowns – this is opera that is diverse, accessible and exciting.
