Be part of history at the Australian premiere of Rossini’s Final Epic
The legendary tale of the sharp-shooting hero on a quest for freedom makes for epic opera: a struggle for liberty against oppression and the courage that victory demands.
One hundred and eighty-nine years after its Paris Opera debut, Rossini’s final masterwork, famed for its iconic overture, receives its Australian premiere. Epic opera demands epic staging and director Rodula Gaitanou (Royal Opera House, Opera Holland Park) and designer Simon Corder tackle Tell with grit and grandeur.
Hope is illuminated in a darkened world with this striking new production.
