  • This event has passed.

It’s all the sexy bits of opera, designed specially to delight the senses!

Join us for an intimate evening with three of Opera Queensland’s finest artists, at a performance created exclusively for Gladstone.

Take your seat and dine on a menu designed exclusively for this event by Lightbox, then sit back and enjoy the well-known arias and duets as they perform a fascinating feast of songs from swoon all the way to sultry.

Whether as the raunchy Toreador from Carmen, as opera’s great seducer, Don Giovanni, or as Figaro, everyone’s favourite factotum, Jason Barry-Smith will serenade and entertain, alongside diva-licious, sparkling songstress Emily Burke with a range of characters from the naïve peasant girl Zerlina through to operetta’s saucy cabaret queen with Lehár’s “Meine Lippen”.

Beautiful melodies contrast with charming wit and a wicked sense of humour, as the talented stars of Opera Queensland present the most beloved and recognisable hits of the opera world, from Handel to Mozart, Puccini to Verdi, Gilbert and Sullivan and beyond, featuring renowned accompanist Narelle French at the grand piano.

Alternate drop of slow cooked beef cheeks, red wine, root vegetables, orecchiette pasta & shaved Pecorino OR chicken masala, double cream, button mushrooms, broccoli & cheese arancini.”
