Llewellyn Hall

CSO Opera Gala

Saturday 18th May - 7:30pm
Llewellyn Hall
Canberra Symphony Orchestra

Feel the passion in this year’s Opera Gala Concert. Two of opera’s most exciting young stars—soprano Jacqueline Porter and bass-baritone Jeremy Kleeman—join the Canberra Symphony Orchestra in an operatic journey from Monteverdi to Sondheim, with Bizet, Beethoven, Mozart, Gluck, Puccini, Porter and Lehár along the way. The Canberra Symphony Orchestra will present the gems of the operatic repertoire—as well as some hidden treasures—in a concert bound to give you goose bumps.

Featuring excerpts from Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro to the spurned Micaëla’s heartbreaking aria in Carmen and Colline’s touching love song to his favourite coat in La Bohème—not to mention Hanna and Danilo’s tender duet from The Merry Widow—you’ll laugh, sigh and swoon all evening, before the uplifting Sunday from Sondheim’s Broadway hit with George will ensure you leave Llewellyn Hall on a high.
