The tropical beaches of the North Queensland will be home to one of the most romantic operas of all time, as Opera Queensland presents La bohème.
Puccini Project makes its seventh stop in Townsville, as one of the eight regional communities involved in a world-first project that will give hundreds of everyday people the opportunity to perform in the chorus of a brand new productions of La bohème.
We have chosen 36 adults and 12 children from the community to swap their snorkels and flippers 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 Townsville Civic Theatre on the 30th of August.
