In 2019 we will circumnavigate Australia, performing in 20 regional centres from Mackay
in Queensland, to Tennant Creek and Alice Springs, via Mount Isa and then on to Broome
and Karratha, travelling down the coast of Western Australia and across the Nullabor
to Ceduna before ehading back to Melbourne.
In each town we invite children from the community to create the chorus. More than
400 children will perform alongside artists from Opera Australia on its national tour
of Madama Butterfly and, for most of them, it will be their first experience
of opera. This incredible opportunity draws in families, schools and the wider community,
leaving a lasting legacy of music appreciation and hunger to discover more.
