Opera in the Square

This is a past event

Dates

Sunday 15 November 2020
From 4pm

Sunday 22 November 2020
From 4pm

It’s not over ‘til the fat lady sings… and what would you know: Stage 4 is over, and we’re bringing back Opera in the Square!

We’ve partnered with Opera Australia to bring two fabbo operatic classics to our big screen. They’re real recordings of the stage performances themselves, illuminated digitally Hamilton-style, so pop by and enjoy.

And, like everything on the Big Screen, it’s free. Mi-mi-mi-mi-miiii…

Aida

In 2015, Gale Edwards directed this production, bringing a contemporary lens to one of the world’s favourite operas. Lavishly designed by Mark Thompson, the staging is epic in scale but intensely intimate, telling the story of the enslaved princess Aida, her great love Radamès and her rival Amneris. 

Latonia Moore, who caused a sensation when she first played Aida at the Metropolitan Opera in New York, delivers a gripping and sublime performance of the role that made her famous. She’s well matched by Milijana Nikolic as Amneris and Walter Fraccaro as Radamès. 

Date: 15 November

Classification: G 

Screening Time: 4:00pm 

Turandot  

Chinese director Chen Shi-Zheng brings a fresh eye to the fable of the ice-hearted princess and the prince who seeks her love. Shi-Zheng’s work forms a bridge between Chinese and Western artistic approaches, drawing on the Hollywood film tradition, theatrical acrobatics and traditional Chinese opera to create works that thrill visually and cut to the heart. 

Dragana Radakovic stars as Turandot alongside Riccardo Massi as Calaf and Hyeseoung Kwon as Liù. Puccini’s score soars out across the harbour under conductor Brian Castles-Onion, with the timeless ‘Nessun Dorma’ at the opera’s climax. 

Date: 22 November

Classification: G 

Screening Time: 4:00pm
