Ariande auf Naxos: Operabox to give performance at Darlington Hall

OPERABOX, the performance group dedicated to presenting opera and encouraging talent, is back in the Hills next week with a performance of Richard Strauss’s Ariadne auf Naxos.

A clever combination of comedy and tragic opera, Ariadne tells the story of the competition between high art and popular art on September 13.

Artists on each side fight for their work in a hilarious prologue and we ultimately enjoy the beauty of both as they are performed simultaneously in an “opera within the opera”.

The production, in the 100th year since its premiere, promises to be a highlight of opera in WA in 2016.

The performance in Darlington Hall on Tuesday, September 13, starting at 7.30 pm, is performed in German with English subtitles.

Tickets can be booked online at bit.ly/AriadneTix, or by calling 0406 258 450.
