Opera Australia returns to Uluru

The success of the inaugural Opera Australia performance at Uluru in 2019 has resulted in an immediate return to the rock.
The opera company will return to Uluru from December 11-13, 2020, with an expanded program of four intimate performances.

“This year's performance completely sold out in just five days, and the event itself was a great success, so we knew that we needed to find a way for a bigger encore performance”, said Voyages Indigenous Tourism CEO Grant Hunt. 
“It was such an honour to perform in front of the Rock this year, you could feel the excitement and awe ripple through the audience”, said Lyndon Terracini AM, the Opera Australia artistic director. 
“We're thrilled to be partnering with Voyages again to announce our return to Uluru in 2020 – it will be a fabulous showcase of our incredible singers and musicians, combined with the spectacular outback landscape and the spiritual energy that is Uluru.”
Guests in 2020 will be able to curate their own operatic experience from the program, choosing one or multiple performances depending on their own preferences. 
The weekend commences on Friday night with the Marriage of Figaro poolside dinner set in the poolside surrounds of Sails in the Desert. Opera Australia will present a performance of the joyous final act of Mozart's opera before guests enjoy a three-course dinner. 
On Saturday morning, the Brahms Liebeslieder Waltzes sunrise performance will be limited to 100 guests. The performance will be followed by a light breakfast. 
The main event, Opera at Uluru, on Saturday evening will feature some of Opera Australia's finest singers performing under the stars, accompanied by a chamber orchestra. Details of the program will be announced later in the year. 
On Sunday morning guests will have the opportunity to experience Taryn Fiebig with Cello, Sunrise Performance, an exclusive outdoor recital performed as the sun rises over Uluru and Kata Tjuta. 
The Helpmann Award-winning soprano and accomplished cellist's performance will again be limited to 100 guests. 
Packages start from $725 per person and include accommodation at Desert Gardens Hotel (twin share) plus entry to the Opera at Uluru gala concert.
