Opera Queensland’s 2021 regional tour will be the most significant in the company’s 40-year history and a centrepiece to our 40th anniversary celebrations.
Visiting more than 20 locations and travelling almost 6,000 kilometres, the tour takes over regional Queensland with a celebration of Opera and Country music throughout May and June.
This cabaret style performance explores the extraordinary qualities and surprising similarities of Opera and Country music. Using the canvas of history – 400 years of opera and almost 100 years of Country music – Are You Lonesome Tonight tells a story about love, yearning and life on the road.
Arias by composers like Puccini and Verdi sit alongside songs by Slim Dusty and Dolly Parton. Are You Lonesome Tonight embraces and celebrates the power of good music that transcends the boundaries of genre.
