The Call

Concept Ali Mcgregor based on an original story told by Auburn Sheaffer
Composer Connor D’netto with Kate Miller-Heidke
Libretto Kate Miller-Heidke & Keir Nuttall

A new Australian work, inspired by a remarkable true story about a woman left with nothing but a phone number. She dials, someone answers and so begins a conversation that changes everything.

Starring Ali McGregor (Lorelei) this astonishing new opera shows how a single act of kindness can transform an entire life.

The Call is sung in English with English surtitles.

The Human Voice

Francis Poulenc
Elle is alone, motionless in a room, she goes to leave but is stopped by the phone ringing. It is the love of her life. Rather than compassion she is confronted with a truth she finds impossible to accept.

Audiences have been wowed by Alexandra Flood’s two sold out recitals and now we present her in full flight. Dynamic conductor Zoe Zeniodi, a rising star in the international music scene, leads a full strength Queensland Symphony Orchestra, with the creative team behind The Marriage of Figaro returning to bring this powerful double bill to life.
