Upcoming performances


Presents Mozart’s



63 phoenix St Brunswick
SEPT 9th, 10th, 17th, 23rd and 24th all shows 4pm. Doors open 3:30pm

Bookings: http://emotionworks-cut-opera.eventbrite.com.au

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!
‘The Don’ is the typical ‘bad boy’ legend of the opera world. The modern-day equivalent is the rock legend, the rebel, living by the mantra ‘live fast, die young’!
This interpretation tells the story of the final day in the life of Don Giovanni, a Rock God and famous seducer of women – where his past finally catches up with him and he descends into the depths of hell.


A black comedy about murder, seduction, rebellion, revenge and retribution – there is no redemption – ‘just sex, drugs and rock and roll’!
The Don – hero or villain? Come and make up your own mind. Book your tickets to see and hear Mozart’s beautiful music mixed with your favourite rock classics ranging from Led Zeppelin to Blondie. The show features great opera and contemporary voices and is accompanied by the Cut Opera House Rock Combo.
Award winning opera director Julie Edwardson continues to break new ground with Emotionworks Cut Opera – bringing opera to new audiences, fusing music genres and cultures in cabaret style productions. This is opera as originally intended – with a beer in one hand, a foot tapping and up close and personal. Pure entertainment! No boring bits! Affordable! Fun! Accessible!

Tix $35 concession $30
To engage young people in seeing opera and ‘live’ music, these performances are $10 to under 25’s.

    Thank you, I attended the show on Sunday and it was a great success

    A great venue and the singing was brilliant. Congratulations to the 2 that played Violetta and Alfredo, I think they did a wonderful job. The acting in particular by Alfredo was commendable and he played this role well.

    Look forward to future shows

    Hi Julie

    My sister and I attended last night’s performance and absolutely loved the show! 🙂

    We loved the energy and passion from the performers and very much enjoyed singing along with them the classic Beatles’ songs.

    The final scene in particular was so moving – it had both my sister and I in tears!

    All the performers were just amazing – so incredibly talented.

    Congratulations Julie to you and your cast. Thank you so much to all of you for sharing your unique gifts with us – it was just brilliant! We had a wonderful night. 🙂
