David Hobson stars at Pilbeam

WHETHER it be performing award-winning roles such as Rodolfo in Opera Australia's La Boheme or joining in the fun on television's top-rating It Takes Two, David Hobson is surely one of Australia's most awarded and best-known operatic performers, and he is coming to the Pilbeam Theatre in June.

A veteran of many performances with both state and national opera companies in Australia, David is also well-known overseas, performing in a variety of roles including the world premiere of Dangerous Liaisons with the San Francisco Opera.

In his first solo engagement in Rockhampton David will perform an intimate concert of his favourite music. The program will include operatic favourites such as Bononcini's Per la gloria d'adorarv, from the opera Griselda, De Crescenzo's Rondine al Nido, Faure's Après un rêve and Claire de Lune and Debussy's Romance.

The program will also include additional repertoire by Rodgers and Hammerstein and Lerner and Loewe.

David will be accompanied by David McSkimming on the piano.

David Hobson in Recital is presented by Rockhampton Regional Council and is part of the Pilbeam Theatre 2009 See It Live Theatre Season.

The Australian Government is proud to be associated with this tour through the national performing arts touring program, Playing Australia, which allows Australians across the country to see some of our best performing arts.

David Hobson will perform at the Pilbeam Theatre on Wednesday, June 3, at 7.30pm. Tickets are available from the Pilbeam Theatre Box Office, Dial'n'Charge on 4927 4111 or on line at www.pilbeamtheatre.com.au
