Opera and musical theatre fans rejoice
FANS of opera and musical theatre can rejoice, with a new spin on the celebrated Opera in the Caves promising audiences something different for tonight's show.
Producer Bruce Edwards said audiences would have the chance to see how diverse the performers were with a mix of opera and musical theatre.
"Normally we have Les Miserables or Phantom of the Opera, this time we've gone a little bit different," he said.
"It's fantastic, you actually get to see how diverse the performers are that we have in this underground opera.
"They're astounding opera singers, but you also get to hear some of your favourite musical numbers."
Bruce also said the Capricorn Caves was the closest thing to a perfect acoustic he'd found anywhere in Australia.
"The best thing about it … is being able to sit one of two metres away from performers who have sung at Covent Garden and Carnegie Hall," he said.
"Going into the caves and listening to the astounding voices in such a perfect acoustic…it's just incredible."
The Opera in the Caves is on at 7.30pm tonight and tomorrow, and on at 3pm on Sunday.
Tickets are available from ticketmaster.com for $71.32 for adults, $50.93 for children from 2-15 and $61.12 for concessions.
The performances are in the cathedral room at the Capricorn Caves, at 30 Olsen Caves Road
