Conductor and educator Graham Abbott leads a series of fascinating one-day sessions that get to the core of what makes opera great, why it moves us, and how it gets from the page to the stage.

Abbott’s charming, informed and witty delivery is a wonderful way to learn in a relaxed and fun environment. Each Discovery Day focuses on a different composer and is timed so that you’ll know a lot more about each of our major productions before it arrives. Bring your partner, friends or family along for the day and enjoy lunch on us. School’s in session. See you Saturday!

Puccini, Saturday 26 October, 10am–4pm

A Japanese melting pot: State Opera presents perhaps the two most famous operas set in Japan side-by-side in November. Puccini’s Madama Butterfly is one of the most popular and most often-performed stage works in the world, while for fans of Victorian operetta, Gilbert and Sullivan’s The Mikado is a perennial favourite. The former is a gut-wrenching tragedy, the latter a delightful farce, yet both show the European fascination with the exotic, and in particular Japan (only recently open to the West when these works were written). Beneath the surface they have much to say to us today about cultural appropriation.

This Discovery Day explores the history of both works; we’ll hear from people involved in the productions as well as experience some of the music live in the studio.
