Opera Australia x Mazda opera in the Sydney Domain
It’s amazing to see what bringing together four of the country’s greatest sopranos and tenors, coupling them with ten of the world’s most well-loved arias and putting them on a giant stage in the middle of a park will do. The result? 25,000 people in Sydney alone enjoying the vocal talent of some truly gifted people. And that’s not even taking into account those watching on TV.
The annual Mazda and Opera Australia ‘Opera in the Domain’ took to Sydney’s airspace alongside the Sydney Festival recently, performing to the musical backing of the Opera Australia Orchestra to celebrate all that is good in the arts.
Off the back of the seasonal debut of the same in Melbourne at the ‘Opera in the Bowl’ in Melbourne, the likes of Sian Pendry belted out numbers like ‘Pres des ramparts de Seville’ and ‘L’amour est un oiseau rebelle’ (also called ‘The Habanera’) from Carmen:
As well as the ultimate song about female independence and freedom; ‘Siempre Libera’ from La Traviata:
Ho-Yoon Chung sung about the elixir of love in ‘Una Furtive Lagrima’:
Luke Gabbedy took us back into the bullring with the ever-popular ‘Toreador’ song from Carmen, ‘Votre toast, je peux vous le rendre’:
While Ho-Yoon Chung and Luke Gabbedy took to possibly the world’s most loved duet, ‘Au fond du temple saint’ from The Pearlfishers.
