Songs to Die For at St George
Opera Queensland‘s Songs To Die For tour is a cheeky, celebratory and ultimately reverend look at Opera’s relationship with the art of dying. Touring across regional Queensland, Songs to Die For is directed by Opera Queensland Artistic Director Patrick Nolan. It stars leading artists Soprano Rebecca Cassidy, Mezzo Soprano Jessica Low, Baritone Jason Barry-Smith with musicians Scott Saunders and Trevor Jones. The performance also weaves some of the great operatic death scenes from Purcell to Wagner with contemporary pop songs from artists like Amy Winehouse and Kurt Cobain.
