Opera Australia’s Oz Opera presents La traviata

Opera Australia’s Oz Opera drove in off the highway from Mt Isa on Monday night, and by 8.00 am the next morning the tech crew were hard at work unloading and setting up in the Civic Hall.

Excitement had been building for weeks in Tennant Creek for this satellite Festival event. Two years ago, when Oz Opera last came to town, people were enthralled by Madame Butterfly. And on Tuesday night, their expectations for another magnificent Oz Opera performance were met: La Traviata, Verdi’s great love story, was a huge hit.

Thank you to Mrs Judy Nixon, Francine McCarthy and the Patta Aboriginal Corporation for the Welcome to Country. And a big thank you goes out to Ross, Alan, Peter, Sam, Jordan and Dirk – locals who were employed to assist the Oz Opera crew and without whom the show might not have been possible!
