Opera Favourites at the movies

7 February 2025

Donald Gordon Theatre

Lights, camera, action… opera goes to Hollywood. 

Opera, with its catchy melodies and hummable choruses, is the perfect accompaniment to any life event and, in the movies, there are no shortage of moments to enhance.  

From Apocalypse Now, embark on a dangerous journey with the infamous Ride of the Valkyries by Wagner (Die Walküre), experience the rise and fall of The House of Gucci with Rossini’s exhilarating and energetic Largo al Factotum (The Barber of Seville), join James Bond on his mission in Quantum of Solace with Puccini’s epically profound Te Deum (Tosca) and more. Opera has officially transcended the operatic stage and gone mainstream!   

Whether an opera enthusiast or curious to give it a go, take a seat and join us on an unforgettable night of opera favourites from the movies.
