‘They all die in the end’
Original work by Scott Saunders

21st June, 2020

Scott Saunders was the Co-Musical Director on Opera Queensland’s ‘Songs To Die For’, our 2019 production exploring some of the great death scenes in the operatic canon.

Taking his cue from the likes of Mozart and Noel Coward, Scott wrote ‘They all die in the end’ in the style of a ‘list song’ celebrating the many inventive ways people meet their end in opera. Revisit the lives – and deaths – of heroes and villains including from Tosca, Otello, Desdemona, Don Giovanni and Peter Grimes.
