A Spotlight On…

Opera Queensland

TFFF has been a supporter of Opera Queensland (OQ) for over ten years, most recently boosting the capacity of their Learning, Regional and Community department to facilitate increased engagement with opera throughout Queensland’s diverse regional communities.

Over the last year, OQ has persisted through ever-changing COVID restrictions to deliver an impressive total of eight Learning, Regional and Community initiatives across more than 30 locations in metropolitan and regional Queensland, including:

Tosca Te Deum | August and September 2020
When COVID-19 necessitated the cancellation of OQ’s ambitious regional tour Project Tosca, the company swiftly crafted a new plan, engaging with local community members and aspiring artists from seven major centres – Cairns, Townsville, Mackay, Rockhampton, Gladstone, Toowoomba and the Gold Coast – to form a digital chorus.

One hundred local singers and chorus masters, spread 1,800km across Queensland, gathered weekly online with the professional cast to rehearse before recording themselves singing the Te Deum, the powerful closing piece of Act 1 of Tosca. The individual recordings were brought together into one digital performance video, under the creative direction of Artistic Director Patrick Nolan and Laura Hansford, working closely with celebrated sound designer Geoff McGahan and videographer and lighting designer Mark Howett.

Are You Lonesome Tonight Tour | May and June 2021
In celebration of OQ’s 40th anniversary, the company undertook the most significant regional and remote tour in its history. The brand-new opera and country music production of Are You Lonesome Tonight, featuring arias and songs by Mozart, Verdi, Slim Dusty and Dolly Parton, toured to 31 locations with 33 performances, and amassed a total audience of over 11,500 people
in just eight weeks.

With support from Mount Isa Mines, OQ artists completed residencies with the Mount Isa community, including six local schools and four community vocal ensembles. The residencies focused on vocal skills, self-confidence, stage craft and creative collaboration. Just under 100 local children came together to perform the repertoire they learnt as a chorus to an audience of 460 people (including parents and families) at the opening of the Mount Isa performance.

Festival of Outback Opera | May 2021
The inaugural Festival of Outback Opera joined over 2,200 locals and interstate guests in an eight-day celebration of opera across five local government areas in Western Queensland.

Two major outdoor concerts headlined the program in a combination of powerful storytelling and idyllic venues, Dark Sky Serenade was held at Winton’s Australian Age of Dinosaurs Museum and Singing in the Night took place in front of the original Qantas hangar at the Qantas Founders Museum in Longreach. The program also featured the popular community singing event Sing Sing Sing at the famous North Gregory Hotel, as well as performances of Are You Lonesome Tonight in uniquely outback settings including the Waltzing Matilda Centre in Winton, the Australian Stockman’s Hall of Fame in Longreach and the Woolscour in Blackall.

Opera Queensland’s Director of Learning, Regional and Community, Mark Taylor, reflects on the company’s capacity building journey:

“Opera Queensland has long shifted away from that FIFO – fly-in, fly-out – mentality of rolling into town for a show, rolling back out and having no engagement for the next year or two. Everything we do is directed towards building a great network of friends across the state who feel a really deep connection with their state company.”
