This exciting opera fusion 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 and performs in unusual and dramatically relevent sites and spaces.

This is opera fusion and we believe in integration! Presenting opera in a casual, cabaret style production, intense and fast moving with a healthy dose of humour, love, irreverence and raunchiness thrown in.

“Aussie Rules meets Mozart in a you-beaut, zany and delightful adaptation………….more than 30 Oz Rock hits sits comfortably among Mozart’s golden hued score”. Paul Selar, Melbourne Herald Sun 10/10/2016

“Edwardson nestles The Beatles songs ingeniously into Puccini’s framework” Melbourne Herald Sun

“…melodic songs and lulling harmonies are lovingly recreated with combined vocal and instrumental grit” Melbourne Herald Sun

“Puccini would not recognise this Tosca….energy, verve, courage and imagination….clever use of space….costumes were fun. Director Julie Edwardson kept the action moving.”   The Age

“If you hate opera you’ll love this!”
