Pacific Opera Presents...
On Saturday 21st May audiences were treated to 2 back to back 'Pocket Operas' presented by Pacific Opera Suor Angelica (performed in Italian), directed by Cheryl Barker & Albert Herring (performed in English) directed by Peter Coleman-Wright AO. With full orchestra, led by Mr Bradley Gilchrist, audiences were captivated and flourished in simplistic yet beautiful set, lighting, costuming and a full orchestra as performers truly showed that singing is back post COVID.
Audiences of Suor Angelica were treated to an exclusive Q&A session with performers post show before a joint afternoon tea held in the Main Foyer.
Many thanks for the audiences, performers, orchestra & Pacific Opera for shining the stage and bringing us 2 truly magnificent operas.
