Kumudha is a young woman with a secret power – the ability to transform herself into a tree covered in valuable blossoms. But sometimes rare gifts can inspire both love and jealousy in equal measure.

Exploring themes of magic, transformation and the healing power of deep and selfless love, A Flowering Tree is a majestic retelling of a traditional Indian folk tale by world renowned composer John Adams.

A Flowering Tree is a story for our times, brought to life in this semistaged production with exquisite video design by Mic Gruchy. This Helpmann Award winning production was first seen at the Perth Festival in 2009 and now Brisbane has the chance to see this beautiful opera.
