A magical music concert under the stars on the evening of Saturday March 14th held under the majestic ghosts gums on the shaded fairways of Beechworth Golf Course at Baarmutha Park. Opera in the Alps is an annual event that this year features solo guest artists, including vibrant star mezzo-soprano Silvia Colloca, dashing baritone Sam Dundas, and international didgeridoo player William Barton. They will be joined on stage by aspiring young singers from Opera Scholars Australia and the full Symphony Australis orchestra, who together will be presenting a packed-program of favourite opera and musical highlights under the stars. Stunning opera singer Silvia Colloca, well known to many foodies from her SBS “Made in Italy” and “Cook Like An Italian” food shows, will be adding her gourmet touches to the special Opera Feast that can be enjoyed before the start of Opera in the Alps, when she is set to wow fans with several soaring arias. As part of a statewide campaign to attract visitors, particularly Melburnians, back to Victoria’s country regions, Opera in the Alps will this year play a vital role in helping the High Country and its tourism-dependent businesses recover after the devastating impact of the recent bushfires. The region is ready for business with open doors and full larders.
