Opera Queensland Announces An Aria a Day

Opera Queensland, May 8 onwards

Opera Queensland has consulted some of Australia’s most revered music specialists to prescribe an uplifting and invigorating course of free online performances in An Aria a Day.

Theatres and concert halls may be closed but opera continues to ring through the homes and hearts of Australians, uniting people through song during this time of isolation.

Opera Queensland has commissioned talented Australian artists and musicians to deliver a daily dose of music and performance to engage, inspire and unite audiences from all walks of life.

An Aria a Day celebrates the diversity and power of opera; encapsulates the emotion and storytelling of the artform; and demonstrates the passion, strength and resilience of Australia’s artistic community.

Ali McGregor

O mio babbino caro from Gianni Schicchi
