Sometimes it feels like a crime to go indoors when the skies are clear, even for a night at the opera. That’s why we’re taking the opera out of the theatre and onto the beach.
Picture a giant sandcastle on the beach at Coolangatta, families enjoying a picnic, children making sandcastles as the sun goes down, and miraculously beautiful music. And there you have a uniquely Australian production of one of the world’s favourite operas, Mozart’s The Magic Flute.
This new production is directed by Michael Gow and stars some of Opera Australia’s finest singers, alongside a chorus drawn from community choirs and the Gold Coast’s own surf life saving clubs.
Together, they will battle the monster, put a spell on the guards and rescue the princess, before sending you home, with stars in your eyes, sand in your shoes and songs in your heart.
Premium ticket holders will have exclusive rights to a premium bar on the beach pre-show, during interval and post-show. Their ticket will also include seating on a low beach chair.
A Reserve and B Reserve will be seated directly on the beach.
Catch Opera on the Beach on May 9, 10 and 11 at 6:30pm. The event will be held at Greenmount Beach, Coolangatta.
