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.
