Central Coast News
History was Made on the Coast!
José Carbó, international Opera Singer, acclaimed for his performances at Sydney Opera House, La Scala, Italy and The Met, New York, headlined Coast Opera Australia’s Debut Concert; the Central Coast’s first professional opera company!
Coast Opera Australia’s launch was historic. We now have a local professional not for profit company with world class events to nurture, support and perform in the highly anticipated, Regional Performing Arts Centre once built.
The Debut Concert had over 300 in attendance, standing room only, and a full house standing ovation in the Central Coast Leagues Club, Parkview Concert Hall.
The audience was delighted by the inaugural performance from the not-for-profit entity, Coast Opera Australia Pty Ltd. Hosted by ABC’s Linda Mottram, highlights included: a 44 piece Professional Orchestra conducted by Luke Spicer and supported by Concertmaster Dan Russell; 4 Principal Artists of international acclaim: José Carbó, Sally-Anne Russell, Ayako Ohtake and Caleb Son; plus an Ensemble of 12 of Australia’s finest Emerging Artists.
Artistic Director/CEO and Professional Opera Singer, Angela Brewer of Gosford says, “The Coast deserves an Arts company that provides a professional platform. We’re here to help and support our community in the Arts, bring it all together and lead the way. I think it’s fantastic I can watch Usain Bolt have his soccer debut at the Stadium Friday night and the following night across the road Coast Opera Australia has its Operatic Debut.”
In 2019, Coast Opera Australia will have a world premiere here on the Coast, stay tuned at Coast Opera Australia.
