Family friendly FIZZ! THIS IS FUN                                

Event Passed

Opera Queensland brings the magic of opera to our youngest fans with a revival of the whacky, weird and wonderful production FIZZ!

Based on the classic comic opera The Elixir of Love by Donizetti and reimagined for young audiences, FIZZ! follows a teenage love triangle between Nemorino, an awkward textbook nerd, Adina, his obsession and great beauty and Benny, the spoilt son of a supermarket tycoon.

With the help of a magic love potion, this coming-of-age story has at its heart the message that goodness can prevail.

Filled with twists, FIZZtastic music and a cast of excellent young performers, FIZZ! is designed to delight and entertain children new to opera.

Presented in creative collaboration with shake & stir theatre co. Video design by optikal bloc

Suitable for ages 12 & under

You can book Opera Queensland’s FIZZ! to be performed in your school. For more information click here.
