The Sydney Savage Club present Pacific Opera in

Directed by Cheryl Barker AO and Music Direction by Bradley Gilchrist. Supported by the generosity of the Sydney Savage Club. More information coming soon.
What is a Pocket Opera?
A Pocket Opera is a shortened or condensed adaptation of a well known work. This concept for Pacific Opera is the brain child of our Co-Artistic Director, Peter Coleman-Wright AO, and came about during the Covid-19 lock down period. The Pocket Opera format allows our Young Artists to learn appropriate roles in their entirety (an important skill and experience for a young singer) and then perform selections of these roles for audience. The Artistic Team ensure the cut down, 1 hour versions of the operas maintain musical and structural integrity without the need of the large number of characters and vocal ranges that many operas require. One hour is also the perfect size for an introduction to opera or for anyone with a busy schedule.
