If you have ever wondered what opera was like, now is your chance to savour the experience. Morpeth Gallery, along with the Underground Opera Company, is presenting celebrated arias from famous operas, sung by some of Australia’s best opera singers. The performance is enhanced with vision of Gordon Hanley’s metal point art work coming to life and projected as a backdrop during the performance.
Operarte is a marriage of the genius of ARC Living Master Artist, Mr Gordon Hanley, and The Underground Opera Company that combines exceptional live performances with the visual spectacle of Gordon Hanley’s artworks.
These photo realistic metalpoint masterpieces are drawn with 24ct Gold. The exhibition will include gold gilded reproductions of artworks that Mr Hanley has created to best represent each individual piece in the evenings programme.
Time lapse photographs are taken and combined to create a visually moving masterpiece. These moving masterpieces will be projected on a screen behind the singers in Christ Church Cathedral to create a magical backdrop for each performance.
Join us this October for an incredible opera experience. A concert of the finest performances, to fill Christ Church Cathedral. In true Underground Opera fashion, we will make you LAUGH, CRY and CHEER.
