Pinocchio! The Opera

Tickets on sale 20 September 2019

The story of the world’s most famous marionette will be brought to life at the Ulladulla Civic Centre in December 2019, as Musgrove Opera embark on their first ever tour of the South Coast and Southern Highlands.

After a sold-out Sydney première, the tour will visit Ulladulla on 11 December 2019, 7.00pm at Ulladulla Civic Centre. Lachlan Massey, the Opera’s Director, has written a completely original score and libretto. He believes the sixty minute work will not only appeal to children, but adults as well. “I’m so excited for this tour! The story is such a joyful one, and yet there are new treasures to be mined from every adaptation of Carlo Collodi’s story.”

15-year-old Abbey Thomas is the youngest of the cast, in the title role of Pinocchio. “I cannot wait to play this role again. I had a great time rehearsing and performing at the Sydney première, and to get to tour this show at my age is a real treat.”

Accomplished soprano Natasha Gesto, who plays Francesca said, “There’s something so exciting about this opera. Songs like The Terrible Dogfish and Minds Change have made it a worthwhile night out to the theatre.” Get your tickets today!
