Michael Gow’s Away is one of Australia’s most popular plays. Set in the summer of 1967-68, it focuses on three families embarking on their summer holiday at the end of the year. The families are seen as a cross section of the Australian community. During each of the holidays there is a storm and they coincidently end up on the same beach.

DIRECTOR: Timothy Hill

Val Machin Opera Scenes: Dido and Aeneas

Opera

Classical, Opera & Voice

Henry Purcell’s dramatic work tells the compelling story of Dido, Queen of Carthage, and Aeneas, a Trojan hero. They fall madly in love, but an evil sorceress plots to cause the downfall of Carthage, and with that, the destruction of Dido and Aeneas’ love. Aeneas seeks to defy the gods in order to remain with his beloved Dido. Dido on the other hand, feels betrayed by his perceived disloyalty and her desperation triggers a chain of events that, like most operas, does not end well…

Special thanks to Dr Glenda Powell OAM, whose long-standing support of the Val Machin Opera Scenes, named in memory of her mother, has continued to provide our emerging opera students with invaluable experiences at the Conservatorium.
