Local and international artists gathered under the stars to perform at Opera Australia’s annual Mazda Opera in the Domain. The outdoor concert featured popular arias from works by opera’s greatest composers. Brought to us by Opera Australia’s Principal Partner Mazda Australia, the evening concert celebrated the magic and memorable moments in opera. The stage was lit up with a dazzling line up of Opera Australia’s favourite artists, including popular sopranos Lorina Gore and Daria Masiero; sensational mezzo-soprano Jacqueline Dark; debonair tenor Bradley Daley and charismatic baritone Shane Lowrencev.
The artists were accompanied by the Australian Opera and Ballet Orchestra under the direction of conductor Brian Castles-Onion. With ABC Classic FM’s Christopher Lawrence as the Master of Ceremonies, it was a fun evening. During the evening Mazda presented the keys of a brand new metallic silver Mazda6 2.5L Petrol Touring Sedan to the happy winner of the Opera Australia subscription prize draw.
