Opera Queensland’s 2020 Season: Lorelei
Opera Queensland‘s 2020 Season kicks off with Lorelei, a playful new Australian opera cabaret is sung in English and staged over an hour. Ancient myth meets modern woman in the boundary-breaking work created by Julian Langdon, Casey Bennetto and Gillian Cosgriff covering across tango, pop and classical. The sumptuous production centres on the Lorelei, a trio of Sirens who sit atop the cliffs of Germany’s Rhine River singing sailors to their watery graves. Lorelei made its world premiere with a sold-out season in Melbourne in November 2018.
