Event description

Description

Director: Jane Davidson
Producer Designer: Matthew Adey
Conductor: Paul Kildea*
Head Repetiteur: Tom Griffiths
Master of Music (Opera Performance) students

* Appearing at Hawthorn Arts Centre performances only.

Through music, visual spectacle and incredible stories, opera transports us to special places. Rituals offer frameworks to make sense of our world. The May Day celebration is an English tradition which forms the backdrop to Benjamin Britten's comic opera Albert Herring (1947).

Set in the imaginary english town of Loxford, this comic tale explores Albert's battle against social oppression.

The project brings together the dynamic production team of Jane Davidson and Matthew Adey. Internationally renowned Britten scholar and conductor, Paul Kildea, brings a wealth of experience as musical director. The exciting cast of singers is drawn from the new Master of Music (Opera Performance) at the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music.

We strongly encourage booking in advance for all of our events. This guarantees your seat, and allows us to communicate any unforeseen event scheduling changes with you. Please note, tickets are required for entry to paid events.
