Outlaw Opera set to thrill audiences at the Avoca Beach Picture Theatre 7 & 14 December in a program that features the grittiest, sexiest and most thrilling scenes in all of opera.

This fully-staged concert series features a cast of Australia's finest artists, fresh from the international stage. This hand- picked ensemble of competition winners and critic's choices will be showcased for the pleasure of opera audiences, both new and experienced.

The Avoca Beach Picture Theatre is the perfect visual backdrop for the company's Film Noir aesthetic in its debut performance of some of opera's most egregious felons. The theme is crime. Outlaw means to bring opera to the stage in much the same way as you would see in a movie theatre. This time, the drama will be alive, unfolding before your eyes. It's an exhilarating experience that will change the way you think about opera. While our material may not be age appropriate for very young children, it is certain to be the right introduction for sixteen and up.

Outlaw Opera's debut concert series promises to present opera at its most exciting: dastardly coloratura, darkly erotic low notes, and fiendishly fast cabalettas.

Outlaw Opera was created by Christina Henson, who is a Julliard-trained Opera Singer and Vocal Coach, and a graduate from the University of Medicine in New Jersey. She has pioneered research and practice in biomechanical vocal function, working with both career singers and cancer/reconstruction patients. Henson has worked with concert artists who have sung at the Met, Covent Garden, La Scala and Opera Australia. Since marrying an Australian Egyptologist, she now lives in NSW, where she is head coach with the Central Coast Opera, and coach and choirmaster with the Lyric Opera of the Central Coast.

We mean to make opera exciting and relevant, or die trying. Actually, we might kill each other trying… you'll have to come and see for yourself.
