A talented singer, songwriter and composer, Megan Washington has collaborated with Opera Queensland on several projects over the last few years.
Opera Queensland Artistic Director Patrick Nolan, commissioned Washington to write a new opera when he joined the company, commenting on her exceptional gifts as a storyteller and composer.
“Megan’s songs have the ability to create worlds full of rich, emotionally complex characters – I have no doubt the opera she is writing will reveal a whole new side to her talents,” Mr Nolan said.
“Megan is one of a number of talented composers we are currently working with on the creation of new Australian operas.
This is just one of the ways we are redefining opera for 21st century audiences.”
