If you love a little drama, this is the concert for you!

In our Opera Gala, you can experience all of the highlights of Puccini’s operas in one spectacular concert, under the baton of conductor Giordano Bellincampi. Madame Butterfly flutters with scandal; glitz and glamour abound in La Bohème; and Tosca, Puccini’s sensual melodrama, is a bloodstained tale of love among political intrigue. Featuring soprano Sae-Kyung Rim, tenor Kang Wang, and baritone Phillip Rhodes, you’ll be enthralled by the intimacy of Puccini’s arias, and the powerful forces of love, longing and drama that echo through each and every note. With a rich tapestry of orchestral accompaniment and the 80-strong Voices of Birralee supporting every moment, this is a breathtaking occasion not to be missed!
