Opera magic at twilight in Kalamunda event

A MAGICAL evening of famous operatic selections and more will be offered at the Opera in the Park event in Kalamunda next month.

As the sun sets over the historic Stirk Park in the Perth Hills, come and enjoy operatic selections from Cosi Fan Tutte, Rigoletto and Carmen, as well as much-loved songs from the famous musicals Phantom of the Opera and Les Miserables.

Some of Perth’s finest opera singers – Ileana Otto-Johansen, Kristin Bowtell, Jeremy Ryan (The Voice), Stephanie Parr and John Milton – will be supported by the Caprioska String Quartet, flute player Tresna Stampalia, and directed by Christina Trus-Browning at the piano.

This is the first-time the outdoor concert has been organised by the Rotary Club of Kalamunda and supported by the Shire of Kalamunda.

“Kalamunda Rotary is thrilled to be a part of creating this very exciting music event in Kalamunda’s lovely Stirk Park,” club president Dee Buckland said.

“We have a star-studded group of operatic singers supported by Perth’s passionate Caprioska String Quartet, as well as a piano on stage.

“We’re really hoping the evening will be such a magical experience for the concert-goers that they’ll all want to return next year.”

Patrons should bring their own twilight picnic, chairs, blankets and opera glasses.

Proceeds of the concert will go to support the work of the Rotary Foundation charity Interplast.

Opera at Twilight is on Saturday, November 5 at 6.30pm at the Stirk Park Rotary Sound Shell, Elizabeth Street, Kalamunda.

Gates open at 5.30pm.

Tickets are $35 (no concessions). Call 0409 557 202 for more.
