Iolanta

Concert or Performance

6 Apr 2022 to 9 Apr 2022 Once Only Event

Discover the lived experience of people with vision impairment, as Tchaikovsky’s last opera is exquisitely reimagined in a world premiere production.

Tchaikovsky’s last opera tells the tale of a beautiful woman who falls in love. At least, that’s all it should be about.

Instead, witness the story of a woman who is held captive, not by her blindness, but by the ignorance and assumptions of those around her.

In a world premiere production, West Australian Opera has worked with the vision impaired community of Perth to update the libretto and develop a production that tells the story from Iolanta’s view.

True to the sumptuous beauty of Tchaikovsky’s music, this season will have more than soaring voices and sweeping melodies. The production will take the audience on a journey to discover the lived experience of people with vision impairment, to see the world the way they see it, in a truly immersive event experience.

Sung in English with English Surtitles.
