The power of the human voice
We are thrilled to announce the return of our Opera Gala, where we bring you a concert of breathtaking arias, show stopping duets, and much more! Australian opera stars Natalie Aroyan, Deborah Humble, Diego Torre and José Carbó, together with the stellar voices of Brisbane Chorale, will give you goosebumps as they perform some of the best-loved opera hits of all time. You’ll be roused by Carmen’s Toreador Song, you’ll float away with Offenbach’s Barcarolle, and you’ll swoon at Madame Butterfly’s Love Duet. This is guaranteed to be a blockbuster show. Don’t miss it!
