Friday 7 October – Around The World Of Opera
From balmy Spain to mythical Egypt, outer space to realms of pure imagination, operas have been set in every conceivable location. And from opera houses to sheds, pubs and the outback, operas have been performed in almost as many
different settings. But none is more breathtaking than Undara’s Opera in the Outback. What better place to explore where opera has been both performed and set throughout its history. Join Opera Bites on an engaging and informative journey
through opera’s history with favourites old and new.
Saturday 8 October – The Merry Wives Of Windsor
This hilarious opera by Otto Nicolai is based on the play of the same name by Shakespeare. The weighty and boisterous Falstaff has fallen on hard times and, to cure his woes, has sent identical letters to woo both Mistress Page and Mistress
Ford. The two wives agree to teach the overly amorous Falstaff a lesson he will not forget! Meanwhile Mister Ford, in disguise as Mr. Brooke, has plans of his own for Falstaff and Anne Page sees an opportunity to be with the love of her life, Fenton. Sung in English, fully costumed and complete in 90 minutes with beautiful, memorable and toe tapping tunes and, of course, audience participation!
