Opera in the Bowl

There’s no better way to spend a balmy summer’s evening than with a picnic in hand and live music in the Myer Music Bowl. Join the most‐loved opera chorus and arias from four leading soloists, the Opera Australia Chorus and Orchestra Victoria, this Saturday as they present Mazda Opera in the Bowl.

Brought to you by Opera Australia’s Principal Partner Mazda Australia, this free concert celebrates the magic and memorable moments in opera. The 2015 line-up features dazzling soprano Eva Kong, gorgeous mezzo-soprano Anna Dowsley; tender-hearted tenor Diego Torre; and commanding baritone Luke Gabbedy, with Orchestra Victoria conducted by Anthony Legge with the evening’s Master of Ceremonies, Christopher Lawrence.

Bring the kids, this event is family-friendly and free! So, whether you’re an opera aficionado or opera novice (like us), this is the perfect way to spend a chilled Saturday night.
