Pacific Opera celebrates all kinds of Mums – the good, the bad, and the ugly! – in a special Mother’s Day concert, part of the popular Prelude in Tea series with the theatre’s famous mouth-watering afternoon tea.
Artistic Director Simon Kenway says there will be comedy, tragedy and some romance as well, in the spectacular performance featuring over two dozen young stars of tomorrow’s opera stage!
The concert will also be directed by two talented up-and-coming young associate artists – members of Pacific Opera’s acclaimed training development program this year. Eugene Lynch and Antonia Zappia have been mentored by founding Artistic Director of the company, Christine Douglas and will make their debut alongside fellow associate artist, repetiteur Su Choung.
The concert features some of opera’s best loved solos, duets, trios, choruses and entire scenes – including works by Mozart, Puccini, Offenbach, Massenet, Ravel, Barber, Strauss and more!
