Event Details

After 30 years in the wilderness, the great Australian opera Voss is back on stage, and in the town that first gave it an audience.

State Opera South Australia will present the acclaimed opera by Richard Meale and David Malouf as a spectacular staged concert in September 2021 at Her Majesty’s Theatre, Adelaide as part of its Lost Operas of Oz series. The revival of this much-loved work based on Patrick White’s novel of the same name is a passion project between the Artistic Directors of State Opera and Victorian Opera and has been many years in the making.

Based on the life of explorer Ludwig Leichhardt, who disappeared whilst on an expedition in outback Australia around 1845, Voss was the sensation of Adelaide Festival of Arts when it premiered in 1986.

On the surface, Voss is a tale of one man versus nature and his own nature. What lies beneath is an exquisite and moving exploration of the Outsider; a man who desperately seeks an elusive personal connection, and identity within society. Ultimately it is a love story between two human beings that transcends time and place.
