Product details

The story of Lindy and Michael Chamberlain and the loss of their baby Azaria near Uluru is one of the defining moments in Australian history. From this unforgettable story comes a compelling and dramatic opera by Moya Henderson, in its world premiere recording.

In Lindy, Moya Henderson and her librettist Judith Rodriguez have created a poetic and moving meditation on the nature of truth and hypocrisy, on Lindy's faith and courage and on the myths of the dreamtime, all set within a melodic and communicative musical landscape that creates a powerful framework for the opera's dramatic events. Some of the finest singers in this country come together for this powerful and moving live recording, with Australian soprano Joanna Cole as Lindy Chamberlain and David Hobson as Michael Chamberlain.
