July Sneak Peeks 2019

July sees our members breaking new ground, pushing boundaries and enchanting new audiences, with a number of premieres to look forward to. Brilliant composer Elena Kats-Chernin talks about writing Whitely, Opera Australia’s production about Australia’s iconic artist, which premieres at Sydney Opera House. Queensland Theatre has two premieres — City of Gold and Storm Boy — and we peek behind the scenes with Simona Cosentini and Simone Tesorieri who share their inspiration for City of Gold’s set design. Malthouse Theatre presents the world stage premiere of the chilling sci-fi thriller Solaris, and Melbourne Theatre Company have pulled of a coup with their stage production of the screenplay Shakespeare in Love.
