9 – 13 JAN
Australian National Maritime Museum 2 Murray Street Pyrmont NSW 2009
A nautical noir opera under the stars and on the harbour. Puccini’s one-act masterpiece (the first opera in II Trittico) is a darkly romantic tale of passion, desperation and heartbreak.
Il Tabarro will be staged aboard The Carpentaria, a historic lightship built in 1917 – the same year Puccini finished work on the composition. Innovative director Constantine Costi and his team are taking this brooding opera to an updated setting inspired by 1930s Depression-era Sydney. Conductor Simon Bruckard leads a cast of exceptional Australian talent and a live orchestra for an unmissable night.
