ONE of the largest outdoor concerts of its kind in Australia, Opera in the Alps will celebrate its 22nd year, January 20 2018. Held in the magnificent heritage town of Beechworth, the event has gained its high reputation boasting an impressive guest line up of Australian and International artists and a full orchestra, conducted by one of the country’s most talented and entertaining music directors, Guy Noble.
This year, Opera in the Alps welcomes to the stage Mark Vincent, who recently starred in My Fair Lady and currently at the top of the Classical Aria charts, James Morrison, Australia’s most extraordinary instrumentalist and Anna Voshege, the dazzling young Australian soprano currently taking Europe by storm.
Set on the beautiful Beechworth Golf Course under the magnificent gum trees, patrons will be treated to the best of opera and music theatre together with a 70 voiced chorus.
Gates open at 5:30pm allowing our guests to savour food and wine from the north east region provided by local producers. Alternatively, patrons may choose to experience the delicious premium dining or premium tapas packages inclusive of delectable food and wine options.
Each year there is a musical surprise and this year will be no different. Commencing the concert, three young opera scholars will compete to become the 2018 Opera Scholar of the Year, with a prize of $5,000. Patrons will once again have the opportunity to vote for their favourite young singer, with the winner announced at the conclusion of the concert.
