Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg Editor's Pick

Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg

Wagner's beloved comedy

The mastersingers are holding a high-stakes singing competition, and Walther needs to win. He’s an outsider, an upstart, and he doesn’t know the rules. But to win the hand of his beloved Eva, he must sing the greatest song ever made. Enter Hans Sachs: mastersinger, cobbler, and the beating human heart of this opera. He offers the newcomer all his warmth and wisdom, knowing it will cost his own chance at love. Hans Sachs is a prized tour de force for a baritone with a rich voice and absorbing stage presence. James Johnson leads a huge, exciting cast including Stefan Vinke, Warwick Fyfe and Natalie Aroyan. After his triumphs with the Ring Cycle, Pietari Inkinen returns to Australia to conduct the magnificent score. Hear the Wagnerian forces of Orchestra Victoria and special guests in these performances, exclusive to Melbourne. Kasper Holten’s extravagant staging for the Royal Opera House celebrates change: how the deepest of traditions can give way to something powerful and new. The sets and costumes are elaborate and spectacular. Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg is a glowing testament to the wonder of human artistry. Wagner’s beloved comedy takes a joyful look at the art of music itself: what is wrong, what is right, and who decides.

Madama Butterfly Editor's Pick

Madama Butterfly

Puccini’s sublime opera

Experience the ravishing romance of Madama Butterfly in a bold new production by Australia’s most famous choreographer, Graeme Murphy. Enchanted by the beauty of Japan, the American naval officer Pinkerton takes a young geisha for his wife. The innocent Madame Butterfly falls helplessly, hopelessly in love. But every ship must return to its shore, and Pinkerton returns home, leaving his bride behind. Butterfly waits patiently for her husband to return, and when he comes at last, both lovers have a surprise in store. This long-awaited reimagining uses the same incredible technology that wowed audiences in Aida, where towering flexible LED screens form a dynamic backdrop filled with moving images. Puccini’s sumptuous score includes the hit aria ‘Un bel di’. See it if you like a good tearjerker, Miss Saigon, and stunning sets and costumes.
