Event Details

Composer Elliott Gyger reunites with librettist Pierce Wilcox to transform Peter Carey’s beloved novel Oscar and Lucinda into a new Australian opera. Directed by the internationally acclaimed Patrick Nolan, the work reimagines the love story between the orphaned proto-feminist industrialist and the man who believes he is touched by God. Having nothing in common, except their addiction to gambling, Oscar and Lucinda find each other in colonial-era Sydney with a wild dream: to build a cathedral of pure glass, and to walk it into the Australian outback.
