Opera Queensland present "Are You Lonesome Tonight"


A celebration of country music and opera!

Opera Queensland and Whitsunday Regional Council present Are You Lonesome Tonight!

Are You Lonesome Tonight is a celebration of Opera and Country music, featuring arias and songs by Puccini, Verdi, Slim Dusty, Troy Cassar-Daley and Dolly Parton to name just a few.

Featuring a cast of three of Australia’s finest young singers including Irena Lysiuk, Marcus Corowa and Jonathan Hickey, Are You Lonesome Tonight celebrates all that Opera and Country music have in common - artists, composers and librettists across both artforms understand the power of storytelling sharing many common themes of profound love, heartache, and triumph in the face of adversity.

Are You Lonesome Tonight marks Opera Queensland’s 40th anniversary with the most extensive tour in the company’s history, visiting nearly 30 communities around Queensland.

Join us at the Bowen Soundshell on Friday 7 May 2021 at 7pm for this free community event! Attendees are encouraged to bring your own chairs or picnic blankets. There will be a sausage sizzle, licensed bar and coffee van onsite for items to be purchased on the night.

Are You Lonesome Tonight is proudly supported by Beef Australia.
