Join us for an unforgettable Daytime Music + Theatre performance featuring beautiful, familiar and heart-melting classics from the worlds of Opera and Music Theatre.
Hosted by popular compere Chris McKenna and starring a stellar cast of performers along with a String Quartet, La Prima Opera Gala will take you on a journey through songs that are the backdrop to contemporary life. Hear familiar tunes from movies and TV, advertisements, sporting events, and even cartoons, including the iconic Nessun Dorma from Turandot and the Flower Duet from Lakmé.
One of Australia’s most popular and versatile tenors, Bradley Daley’s international career has won him critical acclaim for many of opera’s most expansive tenor roles.
Bradley is joined by international soprano Alison Jones whose career has taken her to opera houses all over the world, and from London’s West End to Royal Albert Hall and Elton John’s Birthday party.
Mezzo-soprano Caroline Vercoe performed for 15 years at the Sydney Opera House with Opera Australia, and is a Valkyrie in Melbourne Opera’s much-anticipated Wagner’s Ring Cycle in 2023.
Even if you have never stepped foot in an opera house, this show has something for everyone!
Join us in the theatre foyer prior to the performances for complimentary refreshments.
