Neue Kritikenmehr...

Opera Australia’s Tosca highlights the tyranny of evil Scarpia

Remarkable singers and magnificent sets successfully transpose Puccini’s Tosca to Nazi-occupied Rome, bringing home the horror of tyranny and how possible it is to occur.

The Times They Are a-Changin': Nixon Tapes in Sydney

Andrew Mogrelia © Matthew Washburn
The fascinating politics of this opera are diminished by the presentation of just four scenes. The music and three strong performances almost make up as Sydney gets its first taste of this work.

Melbourne Carmen a feast of style and substance

One of the world’s great Carmens and John Bell’s smart direction is a winning combination for this Opera Australia production.

Tosca under Nazi occupation breaks hearts

Splendid performances and a Nazi makeover turns Puccini's political tragedy into a visceral experience.

The way the world ends

Stefan Vinke (Siegfried) and Lise Lindstrom (Brünnhilde) © Jeff Busby
The final instalment of the Melbourne Ring is vividly brought to life by excellent singing, an adaptable set, and committed playing from the pit.
