Thanks to Mosaic’s Ghost Light Bunker (a temporary purpose-built broadcast space), State Opera will give a very special socially-distanced-concert-performance this ANZAC Day.
State Opera sings “for King and for Country”: featuring hit songs of the early 20th Century and the wartime anthems that swelled a nation’s pride, plus a smattering of Gilbert and Sullivan.

Maybe you could sell tickets to include a plus pie option??

Are you going to launch the season to purchase in one shop or will it be piecemeal?
