The Friends of Salamanca (Franz Schubert)

Concert or Performance

25 Sep 2020 to 26 Sep 2020

Youth Opera – Australian Premiere

Known for his humanity, Schubert loved gathering his friends for musical parties to share his latest songs. Never performed in his lifetime, this Schubert rarity is a unique opportunity to see the master songwriter bring his genius to opera with a light-hearted singspiel about the amorous adventures of students united by friendship.

Alonso, Diego and Fidelio live a carefree existence in the Spanish university town of Salamanca, surrounded by hills and vineyards. Alonso needs a little help from his friends to rescue his love Olivia from the idiotic Count Tormes, so they devise a cheeky prank to ensure she falls for Alonso. Love is in the air when the two groups of friends meet.

With delightful musical conversations and jolly ensemble numbers, this Australian premiere is the ideal project for our annual Youth Opera, featuring the next generation of stars.

Celebrate love and friendship with a charming romantic comedy filled with beautiful music that forges a direct pathway to the heart.
