The Sopranos will take to the road in May 2022 as Opera Queensland’s regional touring production.
The Sopranos, a new commission by writer Sarah Holland-Batt, celebrating the bold and rebellious roles women have played throughout the history of opera.
In this rich and exciting terrain, women dare to be different, love more intensely than is considered proper, refuse to play the roles they were supposedly born to play – and often face shockingly violent ends. Yet even as they meet madness or murder, sopranos command the stage with voices so virtuosic and emotionally powerful audiences are enthralled century after century.
Shining a light on the some of the greatest dramatic moments in the repertoire, The Sopranos challenges our assumptions, inviting us to experience these unforgettable women anew.
