Opera At MEMO

feat. Tenor JASON WASLEY, Soprano ALISON RAE JONES, Mezzo Soprano CAROLINE VERCOE & Compere CHRIS MCKENNA

Calling all Opera virgins and connoisseurs. Come to MEMO Music Hall for a different kind of opera experience. It’s the hits of opera you will recognise from movies, TV series, sporting events, cartoons, or advertisements, but with real life opera singers and a comic compere to make sure we don’t take ourselves too seriously.

You will hear the heart melting Flower Duet from ‘Lakme’ (British Airways advertisement), the spine-tingling Nessun Dorma from ‘Turandot’ (Soccer World Cup theme) to music theatre favourites and a carol or two – it is Christmas after all.

Our amazing line-up of artists have sung in Opera Houses all over the world, London’s West End to Elton John’s Birthday Party. Tenor Jason Wasley (Glyndebourne Opera, Opera Australia) who performed Old Deuteronomy in the Australia/NZ tour of ‘Cats’), International Soprano Ali Rae Jones, Mezzo Soprano Caroline Vercoe (15 years with Opera Australia and is a Valkyrie in Melbourne Opera’s much anticipated Wagner’s ‘Die Walküre’). Compere and narrator Chris McKenna injects fun into the evening.

The show features an exceptional String Quartet of talent from leading Australian orchestras, Matt Hassall and Lucy Warren on Violin, Violist Tom Higham and Cellist Alexandra Partridge.

If you need to impress a date, organise a special work Christmas event or introduce a mate to something new, we’ve got you covered. And with a few laughs along the way.
