NEW PRODUCTION

Roll up for a double dose of desperation and drama in this classic double bill of tragedies with stories that cut all too close to home.

In a small Italian town, lusting after someone who is not yours is a dangerous game. And falling in love? Even more treacherous. Two short operas explore the full spectrum of emotion: passionate love, consuming lust, bitter suffering and boundless rage.

This Olivier Award-winning co-production with the Royal Opera House lays bare the raw heart of each opera — ordinary people, driven by emotion to the limits of what we know is human. The result is pure catharsis: everyday tragedy writ large on stage.

Diego Torre sings the famous 'Vesti la giubba' as he performs both challenging tenor roles in one evening, and the Opera Australia Chorus sings the famous Easter Hymn as Dragana Radakovic's voice soars above.
