The Opera Australia Chorus has long been the backbone of our productions. Now, hear the lyrical beauty and power of this chorale centre stage in the Joan Sutherland Theatre.
Chorus! showcases famous choral pieces by the legends of opera, including Verdi, Puccini, Wagner and Tchaikovsky. Director Matthew Barclay and esteemed Chorus Master Paul Fitzsimon thread a compelling narrative through the masterworks of all eras.
The voices of 48 choristers come together to explore vast musical terrain through the emotional language of song.
From Rigoletto’s urgent ‘Zitti, zitti, moviamo a vendetta’ to the sacred incantations of ‘Beglückt darf nun’ (Pilgrim’s Chorus) in Tannhäuser, Pagliacci’s lively Bell Chorus and Madama Butterfly’s exquisitely poignant Humming Chorus, Chorus! is a unique operatic experience that will make your heart sing.
