Presented by Expressions Dance Company, Opera Queensland and Queensland Performing Arts Centre
Voices and bodies take flight in this stunning premiere production celebrating the beauty and complexity of some of Mozart’s most sublime arias and ensembles including music from some of his most famous operas, Don Giovanni, Così fan tutte and The Marriage of Figaro.
Six singers from Opera Queensland join Expressions Dance Company’s athletic ensemble of six dancers to perform new works from some of Australia’s most celebrated choreographers.
Mozart Airborne weaves a fabric of stories through arias, duets and scenes brought together by co-directors Natalie Weir and Lindy Hume. Featuring virtuosic pianist Alex Raineri, this combination of dance, opera and Mozart’s soaring melodies is framed within a design which allows each component to shine. If you love dance, opera and classical piano, join us in the intimate space of the newly refurbished Cremorne Theatre as it comes alive to the sound and movements of Mozart Airborne.
Don’t miss this unique collaboration showcasing a stunning mix of contemporary dance and music from one of the greatest classical composers.
