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.

As part of Opera Queensland's An Aria A Day series, he reprises the aria 'A Wand'ring minstrel I', accompanied by his husband, Dr Edgar Chan, a Clinical Neuro-psychologist with the NHS working on the frontline of the Covid-19 recovery.

Fabulous memories. Would do it again in a flash. Einstein was definitely the most challenging mentally and physically.

A rare treat to see these 3 wonderful operas together. My favourite was Akhenaten.

It was an incredible thing to be part of!

A highlight for me! I would do it again if given the chance! My favourite of the three portrait operas!

I have never counted to 8 so many times in my life!!

Unforgettable.
