OPERATIF! opened this stunning lakeside venue with a gala concert some ten years ago. Its construction was supervised and organised by an amazing lady, the late Ida Duncan, as part of her work on the establishment of the adjoining Botanic gardens..also with Greek features. It has a magnificent natural acoustic, perfectly suited to the big operatic voices of OPERATIF! and we are delighted to be returning there with our own special event.

The concert will be held in the late afternoon of the 20th September and the occasion provides the perfect opportunity to pack a picnic, a favourite wine and enjoy a marvellous afternoon. Have lunch prior in the parklands or book a table at a restaurant in nearby Cooroy or Noosa. If you live further away, then why not stay the night!

Brilliant Tongan tenor Benjamin Fifita Makisi, (who was earlier this year chosen to share a concert with Dame Kiri te Kanawa ) is our special guest. He will fly in the week before and prepare to join us for a spectacular concert of popular opera, operetta, songs from the musicals and Neapolitan song. Other artists will be soprano Jennifer Parish, baritone Stewart Cameron, dramatic soprano Sally Harrison and pianist Lynne Sterling Jordan.
