Referencing the final rooftop concert of the Beatles, in true Cut Opera style, opera and rock go side by side in this season performed on a rooftop with spectacular views over Melbourne CBD.
This is the story of the four bohemians imagined as the Beatles. The beautiful music of Puccinis La Boheme is augmented by Beatles classics in a tragic love story about two constrasting couples – the tempestuous and the romantic. It is as if Puccini had the Beatles in mind.
Directed by Julie Edwardson, award winning director with Opera Australia, the cast will include both opera and contemporary singers. The four lovers are performed by Alexandra Ioan, Patrick Macdevitt, Katy Turbitt and Michael Lampard with vocals and instrumentation by Peter Vadiveloo, Richard Woods and Wayne Cuebas.
In the tradition of Emotionworks Cut Opera this production will be cut down to around 90 minutes and have all the best Beatles songs mixed throughout. Come and sing-along to your favourite Beatles songs, laugh and cry, relax and enjoy a drink at the bar. There will be cover if weather is inclement but if cold bring your woolies.
Ticket prices $40 General, $30 concession $20 unsder 25’s (encouraging youth to opera and live music).
