Rossini Stabat Mater

Orchestra

26 April 7:30pm Conservatorium Theatre
26 April 7:30pm Conservatorium Theatre

Rossini’s masterpiece Stabat Mater is a testament to the composer’s genius. This beautiful work conveys profound grief and hope through its exquisite melodies and lush harmonies, its connection to the bel canto period elevating it above traditional liturgical music. Working with an ensemble of four of Australia’s leading soloists, Richard Mills conducts the Queensland Conservatorium Orchestra and a chorus of sixty vocal students.

This hour-long performance is divided into twelve movements, each brimming with emotional intensity. From the hauntingly beautiful “Stabat Mater dolorosa”, with its ethereal choral harmonies, to the fiery “Cujus animam gementem”, the work weaves a rich tapestry of sound that reflects the text’s profound sorrow and longing.

Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change, the longest running off-Broadway revue in history, has been updated to reflect dating in the 21st century. Brilliantly funny, the fast-paced series of songs and vignettes explore the journey from dating and waiting to love and marriage, through to the agonies and triumphs of in-laws and newborns, trips in the family car and pick-up techniques of the geriatric set. This hilarious revue pays tribute to those who have loved and lost, to those who have fallen on their face at the portal of romance, and to those who have dared to ask, “Say, what are you doing Saturday night?”

Determined to get him back, Elle generously charms her into the prestigious law school. While there, she struggles with peers, professors and her ex. With the support of some new friends, though, Elle quickly realises her potential and sets out to prove herself to the world.
