Your Opera Experience
Coronation of Poppea
No human nor divine heart shall defy Cupid.
Celebrating 450 years since the birth of Monteverdi, Pinchgut Opera proudly presents one of the greatest operas of all time, Coronation of Poppea.
Coronation of Poppea charts the consuming erotic obsession of the Emperor Nero for the beautiful Poppea Sabina. Ruthlessly sweeping aside anyone who stands in the way of their union – including Nero’s wife Octavia and the poet and philosopher Seneca – Nero and Poppea triumph over all their opponents and rejoice in one of the most sensuous and exquisitely beautiful duets, “Pur ti miro”.
Composer: Claudio Monteverdi
Company: Pinchgut Opera
Conductor: Erin Helyard
Director: Mark Gaal
Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland
Follow Alice through the looking glass into a world of colour, fun and fantasy in this dazzling international extravaganza.
Witness as Christopher Wheeldon translates the wit and charm of Lewis Carroll’s story into dance, with extravagant sets and costumes and an extraordinary score. Wonderland comes to life with puppetry, eye-bending illusions and playful costumes as Alice meets a twitchy White Rabbit, tap-dancing Mad Hatter and a tyrannical Red Queen.
With the spectacle of Broadway, this ballet will transport you to into the depths of your imagination.
Company: The Australian Ballet
Choreographer: Christopher Wheeldon
Composer: Joby Talbot
Orchestra: Opera Australia Orchestra
