Are You Lonesome Tonight is our most ambitious regional tour in our 40-year history.
Visiting more than 30 communities and travelling some 8,000 kilometres, the tour embraces regional Queensland with a celebration of Opera and Country music throughout May and June.
With a cast of young Australian singers including Irena Lysiuk, Marcus Corowa and Jonathan Hickey, Are You Lonesome Tonight features arias and songs by composers such as Puccini, Verdi, Slim Dusty and Dolly Parton, to name just a few.
Come in your jeans and boots or your tuxedos and ballgowns – this is opera that is diverse, accessible and exciting.
