SOLD OUT: opera gala at ULURU
For the first time ever, Opera Australia will perform an exclusive concert in the heart of Australia, with the rolling red dunes and Bruce Munro’s Field of Light as the backdrop.
The special gala event, held under the stars, on Saturday 2 November promises to be a once-in-a-lifetime experience, the marriage of sublime art with a uniquely Australian setting.
Come celebrate Uluru’s manifold wonders with renowned singers Natalie Aroyan, Lorina Gore, Diego Torre and others. They’ll sing a two-act program of famous 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.
Packages and tickets are now sold out.
