Local talent has been uncovered as 36 adults and 12 children from the community have been chosen to sing and act alongside OperaQ’s principal artists and Queensland Symphony Orchestra musicians in a professionally staged opera.
La bohème will be performed at the Mackay Entertainment and Convention Centre on the 27th of August.
