Opera in the Castle's programme highlights a concert of popular opera with arias such as Nessun Dorma from Turandot; duets from Lakme and The Pearl Fishers and with ensemble pieces from Nabucco, and Rigoletto. Opera in the Castle promises a magical night of phenomenal performances from world-class Australian artists - a night to remember!

These are some of the amazing reviews, via Ticketmaster, from very enthusiastic opera guests:

"This was my first opera experience and I just loved it. Perfect venue and setting with a small audience. The cast were fantastic such power in their amazing voices."

What a great venue for an evening of delightful music. The castle at night becomes quite magical; subdued lighting, and an intimate space for performance once having crossed the moat via the draw-bridge".
