COULD THIS BE THE WORLD'S FIRST UKULELE OPERA?
The BUMS Festival Group from Brisbane have created a Uke Opera, maybe the first in the world! A modern-day Romeo and Juliet story of eleven songs woven together by a narrator. It’s a tale full of emotion, love, frustration, anger, craziness, sorrow, joy, and violence! How will it all end? Will our hero and heroine end up like the tragic Shakespearean couple? What has Brisbane's iconic Goodwill Bridge got to do with it all? Be in the Newcastle Concert Hall on Saturday 20 October 2018 for all the answers.
Performance begins: Saturday 20 Oct at 2.10pm
The 30 minute show of eleven songs features 15 ukulele players, eight lead vocalists as well as percussion, flute and clarinet!
