Launching in 2007, Opera Australia’s hugely popular concert (now known as) Mazda Opera in the Bowl returns to Melbourne on Saturday 2 December with a stellar line up of Australia’s finest opera singers and musical talent.
Settle-in under the stars and be swept up by the soaring melodies of some of the world’s most popular operas such as Carmen, Turandot, La Traviata and The Barber of Seville by opera’s most loved composers including Puccini, Verdi and Bizet.
This wonderful night of entertainment is hosted by ABC Classic FM’s Christopher Lawrence, the concert features local star soprano Stacey Alleaume, gorgeous mezzo-soprano Sian Pendry, magnificent tenor Diego Torre, and commanding baritone Luke Gabbedy, with Orchestra Victoria conducted by Tahu Matheson.
Attracting a record crowd of more than 13,000 people last year, Mazda Opera in the Bowl is proving to be the quintessential summertime, Melbourne event.
