What's On

Whiteley
 

In 2019, Opera Australia will introduce a brand new production to honour the tumultuous life of iconic Australian artist, Brett Whiteley.

Inspired by the intimate relationship between Whiteley and his creative life, director David Freeman and composer Elena Kats-Chermin will celebrate one of Australia’s most highly-regarded artists in a hybrid performance that brings together Whiteley’s most famous paintings, contemporary opera and immersive digital design.

This biographical narrative will bring the same warmth, wit and poignancy as Australia’s troubled yet talented, artist, rebel, and icon.

 

Venue: Joan Sutherland Theatre, Sydney Opera House
Dates: Monday 15 July 2019 – Tuesday 30 July 2019
Bookings: + 61 2 9318 8200
