Pocket-size opera THE MARRIAGE OF FIGARO


How do you reinvigorate opera for today’s audiences whilst giving emerging young artists the chance to shine?

For the internationally acclaimed Australian baritone Peter Coleman-Wright AO the answer is simple.

You reduce an epic opera to an hour and tailor it to the rising talents at Pacific Opera, where Coleman-Wright AO is Guest Artistic Director. Pacific Opera will do exactly that when it joins forces with Willoughby Symphony Orchestra for its first “Pocket Opera” staging of Mozart’s comic opera The Marriage of Figaro at The Concourse in Chatswood on Saturday 27 March 2021.

The brainchild of Helpmann Award-winning Coleman-Wright AO, who has won plaudits for his spine-tingling performances, insists the pared-back performances will convey the essence of the original opera without diminishing its vocal and emotional power.
