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

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

The final instalment of the Melbourne Ring is vividly brought to life by excellent singing, an adaptable set, and committed playing from the pit.

Laugh out loud Three Oranges in Sydney

A revival of Francesca Zambello's production of Prokofiev's Love for Three Oranges at the Sydney Opera House is a joy, thanks to the antics of Kanen Breen at the head of a strong cast.
