Australian Underground Opera Company

Want to see Carmen in a cave, or Rigoletto in a reservoir? This Brisbane opera company is making it possible.

It's no surprise that the founder of the Underground Opera Company, Bruce Edwards, is a former miner. In the mid-noughties, Edwards turned his knowledge of the underground over to opera, and the rest is history.

Underground Opera Company is a Brisbane based professional theatre company that turns the opera into an adventure. Bli Bli Castle, Spring Hill Reservoir, and the Capricorn Caves in Central Queensland are just a few of the unique venues the Company has used to stage their shows. In 2019, these shows included arias from well-known operas like Rigoletto and Turandot.

And it isn't a mere novelty. Underground Opera Company produces high-quality shows, with performances from world-class opera talent like Dominique Fegan and Glenn Lorimer. Venues are chosen for their superior acoustics and shows are often small, intimate gigs with an audience of less than 100.

Opera has traditionally been a formal affair, but Underground Opera Company is making it an underground sensation.
