Opera to arrive in town soon

Opera Australia will perform a new version of Mozart's The Magic Flute at The Capital theatre in Bendigo on July 22. 

The production is an Indiana Jones-inspired take on Mozart's classic and will feature 12 principal artists of the company, a live orchestra and for the first time, a local children's chorus.

The chorus will be made up of local primary-aged children who will learn songs under the direction of travelling chorusmaster Alex Pringle. 

The children will practise songs ahead of the opera arriving to Bendigo and then rehearse them with the professional cast for the performance.

The company's journey to Bendigo is part of a two-year tour of regional Australia which began this week at The Drum Theatre in Dandenong, near Melbourne.

The production is directed by Michael Gow and designed by Robert Kemp.
