Opera Gala at Uluru
Under a vast canopy of stars, at the very centre of our continent, an evening of soaring emotion awaits.
For the first time ever, Opera Australia will perform an exclusive concert in the spiritual heart of Australia, with the vast outback plains and Bruce Munro’s Field of Light as the backdrop. The special gala performance, held under the stars, on Saturday 2 November promises to be a once-in-a-lifetime experience, a marriage of sublime art with a uniquely Australian setting.
"I was so profoundly moved when I first visited - moved by a sense of awe, and spirituality that is palpable, and by the raw beauty of the landscape. Opera Australia is honoured to be presenting our first ever performance at Australia’s spiritual centre, on the sacred lands surrounding Uluru.” Lyndon Terracini, Opera Australia Artistic Director
It will be a celebration of Uluru’s manifold wonders from singers belonging to one of the world’s most renowned opera companies. Natalie Aroyan, Lorina Gore, Angela Hogan, Simon Kim and Haotian Qi will sing two acts’ worth of the most popular arias – including Puccini’s “Nessun Dorma”; the “Habanera” from Carmen; and the hauntingly beautiful “Au fond du temple saint” from Bizet’s “The Pearlfishers” – accompanied by a chamber orchestra and conducted by Tahu Matheson.
As the sun dips below the horizon, the desert’s intense colours will change from luminous orange to deep purple. It’s a splendid sight, with a magical soundtrack to match.
