- ST KILDA
Death, politics and roaring crescendos – Idomeneo will crash like a wave on St Kilda’s Palais Theatre, directed by Lindy Hume and conducted by Benjamin Bayl.
In this epic production, the mythical King of Crete is faced with an impossible decision: to sacrifice his son in payment of a debt to Poseidon or exile him across the seas. The King will be joined by a vengeful, jealous performance of Elettra and accompanied by the virtuosic playing of Melbourne Chamber Orchestra.
Presented in the grand majesty of the Palais Theatre, this full staging of one of opera’s great jewels will sparkle on the St Kilda foreshore as if it were Poseidon’s bay.
A co-production between Victorian Opera and Opera Australia.
