Internationally Renowned Opera Star to Perform in Front of Home Crowd

Recently back from a successful international career, the Sunshine Coast's very own opera diva Helen Donaldson will be performing in her home town of Caloundra next month. Helen will perform her new show, The Sound of Julie Andrews alongside David Kidd, who returns to Australia direct from several world tours with The Ten Tenors.

The Sound of Julie Andrews celebrates the unique talents and career of one of the world's most loved musical stars with melodies from My Fair Lady, The Sound of Music, Camelot, Mary Poppins and more, all sung by the Coast's Helen Donaldson.

Helen is best known as the star of Essgee Melodies productions of The Pirates of Penzance, The Mikado, HMS Pinafore, The Merry Widow and A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum. In 2000 Helen moved to New York where her work ranged from singing contemporary opera in Russia's New Music Festival to winning the People's Choice Award at the 2003 Bidu Sayao International Singing Competition in Brazil and performing Nannetta in Falstaff for Opera Theater of St. Louis. Helen returned to Australia in 2008 and made the decision to call Caloundra home.

David's acting and singing career began in the early nineties in Brisbane. In 1998 David secured a role in The Ten Tenors, hailed internationally as an "Australian sensation". World tours followed and the international release of seven albums, two of which went gold and platinum in Australia.
