Stellar line-up to perform at BMW Opera for All

BMW-Opera-for-All-courtesy-of-Opera-AustraliaOpera Australia, in partnership with BMW Australia, has announced a stellar line-up of four brilliant singers to perform in the free BMW Opera for All concert in Fed Square on Saturday 4 February 2023.

The global BMW Opera for All series sees BMW working with local opera organisations to present world class cultural experiences to the public for free.

Annual concerts take place in Munich, and the series has also been staged in Berlin, London and Moscow. This will be the first time BMW Opera for All has been presented in Australia.

Singing some of opera’s most famous arias, the cast will comprise soprano Sophie Salvesani, direct from her mainstage opera debut in the recent acclaimed production of Don Giovanni; Melbourne-born and three time Green Room Award-winning mezzo-soprano Dimity Shepherd; Korean tenor Simon Kim, known for his concert performances with Opera Australia and internationally; and acclaimed baritone Luke Gabbedy whose recent role debut in La Traviata received high praise.

This all-star cast from Opera Australia will be accompanied by a superb live orchestra of 16 musicians from Orchestra Victoria, and led by celebrated conductor Brian Castles-Onion.

The free, summer afternoon, open-air concert will feature opera’s biggest hits from Verdi to Puccini for an hour of thrilling high notes and soaring harmonies; it is the perfect way to dip your toe into opera for the first time or revisit some of opera’s best.
