In 2019 State Opera has leapt into a number of exciting pilot programs and projects focussed on diversifying access to the operatic art form, the extension of our geographic reach, and the business capability enhancements required to leverage our talent both on and behind the stage. These projects include the first live broadcast by State Opera of a mainstage production to regional and remote areas as well as the purchase and upgrade of systems and equipment to improve customer service and patron experience. We want to continue to do all this, and more! Future aspirations include online vocal support lessons, video-capture of rehearsals-in-action experiences, podcasts featuring our Artistic Director, and the digital release and distribution of our successful Opera Discovery Days as a free education tool for students everywhere.
MEET OUR SPECIAL GUEST ARTISTS
Don’t miss your very own Merry Widow Antoinette Halloran as you’ve never seen her before, or the Cunning Little Vixen herself Desiree Frahn as she steps out of a fox costume and into something far more elegant. Hear some of the best male voices in the country as Paul O’Neill, James Clayton, Pelham Andrews and Douglas McNicol share the beauty and strength of the grand operatic repertoire alongside something surprising. The delightful Greta Bradman will visit her hometown to spend the evening with us, and there will be music and song and laughs a-plenty around Simon Kenway’s grand piano!
