Love and fun in the Spanish sun
YOUTH OPERA - AUSTRALIAN PREMIERE
Known for his humanity, Schubert loved gathering his friends for
musical parties to share his latest songs. Never performed in his
lifetime, this Schubert rarity is a unique opportunity to see the master
songwriter bring his genius to opera with a light-hearted singspiel about the amorous adventures of students united by friendship.
Alonso, Diego and Fidelio live a carefree existence in the Spanish
university town of Salamanca, surrounded by hills and vineyards. Alonso
needs a little help from his friends to rescue his love Olivia from the
idiotic Count Tormes, so they devise a cheeky prank to ensure she falls
for Alonso. Love is in the air when the two groups of friends meet.
With delightful musical conversations and jolly ensemble numbers,
this Australian premiere is the ideal project for our annual Youth
Opera, featuring the next generation of stars.
Celebrate love and friendship with a charming romantic comedy filled
with beautiful music that forges a direct pathway to the heart.
