The most famous arias, under the stars — free!
Saturday 1 February 2020, 8pm
Sidney Myer Music Bowl
Gates open at 4pm
Spread out the picnic blanket and gather your friends. You’re invited to a special night with a very special hostess: the irrepressible Dame Edna Everage. And thanks to the generosity of Anthony Pratt, it’s all for free!
Enjoy exhilarating top notes and stunning harmonies as some of our most exciting singers perform the opera hits you love best at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl. Whether you’re a regular at the opera or keen to hear your first ‘Nessun dorma’ live in concert, this is sure to be a memorable night out.
Complete with the 60-piece Orchestra Victoria, this is the perfect evening for Melbourne’s music lovers to enjoy together, and an opportunity for you to introduce someone to opera for the first time. But look out for a glimpse of wisteria hair — with Australia’s most famous diva on stage, you never know what might happen.
Gates open at 4pm, so arrive early to enjoy a program of family-friendly entertainment before the concert. Brihony Dawson, performance art trio Born in a Taxi and magician Anthony Demasi will help you while away a perfect summer’s afternoon.
