Notes and Editorial Reviews

Opera in the Outback features internationally renowned diva, Dame Kiri Te Kanawa, singing a superb selection of songs from opera favourites such as Puccini’s Tosca and Madame Butterfly through to the popular classics of Richard Rodger’s Carousel and Andrew Lloyd Weber’s Cats. Dame Kiri is also joined by the Adnyamathanha Women’s Choir, the region’s indigenous women’s choir, for the “Warioota Song”.

Set against the spectacular backdrop of Yalkarinha Gorge in the South Australian Flinders Rangers. Opera in the Outback is a truly magical event.
