Artistic Director Lindy Hume and our Candide artists warmly welcomed Opera Queensland Patrons and Opera Club members into the studio last week for a sneak peek into Candide rehearsals – and they loved it!
Singing, dancing, swinging and sailing across the room, the exciting cast including David Hobson, Amelia Farrugia, Bryan Probets and Christine Johnston, is bringing to life Candide’s epic round the world journey. We sent our photographer behind the scenes to capture just some of the action from rehearsals, wardrobe and the scenery build to give you a firsthand look at Candide.
“I’ve loved shooting Candide. The artists are incredibly dynamic and exciting to watch . Under Lindy’s direction it is a musical theatre piece that is both hilarious and thought-provoking.” Photographer, Stephanie Do Rozario
Candide opens at the Playhouse in just two short weeks. Hundreds of opera and Bernstein fans have snapped up the special $25 tickets with many opting to spend a little more to buy tickets up close. Today OperaQ announced a new release of $75 tickets for selected performances, especially chosen to give our music lovers and adventurers a fantastic view of all the action, including the Queensland Symphony Orchestra on stage
If you haven’t yet secured your seats for Candide then act fast, a show like this comes but once in a lifetime.
