Event Details

There is no more exciting event planned in Perth’s arts calendar this year than the world premiere of Nova Ensemble’s opera into the SHIMMER HEAT.

The first Opera to take full advantage of the new theatre technologies offered by the magnificent Heath Ledger Theatre in Northbridge. Written and produced in Western Australia. Starring two great local divas, Sara Macliver and Fiona Campbell, into the SHIMMER HEAT is a contemporary work inspired by the great romantic operas. There are passionate love songs and arias of loss and despair accompanied by brilliant musicians, a fabulous set, extraordinary puppetry and inspiring dance. This is a story of a modern West Australian family broken and reunited in the desert . At times heartbreakingly sad, it is also uplifting with acts of courage, humour and triumph that inspire. An opera should take its audience on an emotional roller coaster and into the SHIMMER HEAT will certainly deliver that rush.

Further information for this event is available online at the event's website or by phone on 0861 022 517 or by email to shimmer@networkingwa.com.au
