Time Out Melbourne

This event has finished

Using the traditional to tackle the contemporary, independent opera company Lyric Opera of Melbourne will bring to life Aaron Copland's The Tender Land – reinstating opera's position as neither antiquated or just for the fanciful.

First written for television in the '50s, The Tender Land is a poignant coming-of-age story about facing small-town prejudice. Regardless of where you may sit with the highly topical subject of bigotry at the moment, Lyric Opera of Melbourne's timely production is likely to add just a little more profundity to your perspective, or perhaps even alter it completely.

Featuring rising soprano Emily Uhlrich and acclaimed Opera Australia principal tenor Henry Choo.
