This exciting opera company is the brain child of opera director Julie Edwardson (2011 Green Room Award Winner OA). By combining different musical genres and vocal styles, like jazz and blues, Julie has adapted well known operas to appeal to a broad range of musical tastes.
Cut Opera condenses well known operas to 90 minutes in length (no boring bits) and performs in unusual and dramatically relevent sites and spaces.
This is opera at its most raw, in a street theatre cabaret style production, with a healthy dose of humour, love, irreverence and raunchiness thrown in.
Emotionworks premier production of Mozart’s Don Giovanni is slashed to 90 minutes, electrified with the best classic rock songs of all time and performed at the funky, psychedelic Rubix warehouse – a hidden wonderland for Melbourne’s creative subculture. This is opera fusion!
