Floods – Brisbane
Not your usual Opera!
Inspired by the courage and resilience of those who lived through the devastating Brisbane flood of 2011 which saw three quarters of Queensland declared a disaster zone, this Queensland Conservatorium contemporary opera commission is an homage to the triumph of human nature in the face of adversity.
Presented in four short works by Queensland composers from diverse musical backgrounds, this unique and innovative production, sung in English, is a thoughtful reflection of the dramatic events upon which they are based.
Featuring Queensland Conservatorium Opera students and small instrumental ensemble, and using digital and interactive media, be the first to see Floods when it premieres this September.
