What a great way to herald in the first day of spring. Create a tasty picnic, grab a bottle of wine or thermos of tea and head to Noosa Botanic Gardens. The sprawling area of greenery and ponds hugs the shores of Lake Macdonald and is the setting for this much-anticipated annual concert.
Picnics consumed, patrons take their seats in the stunning, purpose built Greek-style outdoor theatre and prepare for a thrilling afternoon of popular opera and song. The performance is presented by Queensland’s own boutique Opera and Travel company, OPERATIF! (OPERATIF! offers Music-Lovers Tours in addition to performances.)
The theatre enjoys a beautiful lake as its stage backdrop and as the artists sing and the pianist accompanies on a shiny grand piano, audience members delight in the added entertainment of pelicans at play, row boats and ducks. The theatre has a natural acoustic so with operatic voices, the concert takes place with no amplification.
The performance features OPERATIF! regulars, soprano Jennifer Parish and baritone Stewart Cameron, with special guests including mezzo Hayley Sugars who has recently returned from successful seasons in Germany, tenor David Kidd who for over a decade toured the world with the Ten Tenors and brilliant Scottish-born accompanist John Woods. The program offers highlights from Madam Butterfly, La Traviata, Rigoletto, The Pearl Fishers and other great operas together with gems from stage musicals and favourite Italian songs.
This event makes for a great day out if you’re on the Sunshine Coast or a great excuse for a short break in Noosa and surrounds if you’re not. Tickets to enjoy this concert are just $40 or $35 for Groups of 10 or more.
