Opera Queensland’s Festival of Outback Opera returns to Winton, Longreach, Barcaldine, Blackall, Tambo and Windorah from 18 – 27 May 2022.
Set in Queensland’s iconic Outback, the festival celebrates the wonder of opera under an endless sky. This year’s festival features two spectacular open-sky concerts at Winton and Longreach, headlined by Greta Bradman with music direction by Dane Lam, leading the UQ Pulse Chamber Orchestra.
The second of these two concerts is Singing in the Night on Saturday 21 May 2022 at Camden Park Station in Longreach.
Under the vast horizons of this historic 18,000-acre working sheep and cattle station, we examine opera’s relationship with the natural world: the elements, the animals, the trees, and the heavenly bodies. With music by Dvorak, Richard Strauss, Handel and Mahler, audience members will also be treated to a special excerpt from Vivaldi‘s The Seasons with the UQ Pulse Chamber Orchestra.
This concert offers a once in a lifetime opportunity to experience the wonder of opera, unforgettable Outback sunsets and fine country hospitality.
