Shakespeare in the Opera House

27 October, Brisbane.

The next instalment of the University of Queensland’s series of Shakespearean events, “The Delighted Spirit”, as usual supported by the ARC Centre of Excellence for the History of Emotions, is a free lunchtime concert showcasing a selection of wonderfully talented emerging vocal performers.

This concert presents excerpts from some of the nineteenth century’s best-loved Shakespearean operas, including Thomas’s Hamlet (1868), Verdi’s Macbeth (1847), Nicolai’s Die lustigen Weiber von Windsor (The Merry Wives of Windsor) (1848), and Charles-François Gounod’s Roméo et Juliette (1867).

Directed by Vanessa Strydom (UQ School of Music)
