Locals in Mount Isa can each expect a delightful surprise when A Night with Opera Queensland comes to town in September

OperaQ’s new, expansive regional tour will offer something unique with a special all-star show blending moments of shining operatic splendour with theatricality, backstage humour and showbiz sass, all performed at close range.

A Night with Opera Queensland has been lovingly designed to celebrate our cultural heritage, while transporting audiences to a grand opera house.

Mount Isa locals will lend their voices to the chorus.

Featuring soprano Emily Burke, tenor Bradley Daley and baritone Shaun Brown, the tour will include popular, lighter pieces, snappy Broadway favourites and traditional grand opera.

The quartet of singers will bring to life some of the most popular operatic characters from Madama Butterfly, Rigoletto and Don Giovanni, in full costume and with atmospheric lighting, while immersive performances will spill from the stage to the audience.

OperaQ Artistic Director Lindy Hume said that audiences for A Night with Opera Queensland will enjoy meeting these opera artists in a surprising range of modes, from relaxed backstage mode to the high drama of a grand opera performance.

A Night with Opera Queensland is on September 16 at Buchanan Park.
