About the event

Opera has a habit of killing its heroines, but this one’s not going down without a fight. Seven time Helpmann award winner Emma Matthews performs a revealing and powerful musical confession inspired by her own journey and the many great opera heroines that she’s played. Can she make sense of the history that brought her here, or is her fate that of the many doomed opera heroines that have filled her life?

Set in the intimate Fairfax Studio, don’t miss this opportunity to experience the sublime voice of Australia’s greatest soprano, up close, consuming the space between artist and audience like never before. With music composed and performed by jazz pianist Paul Grabowsky, a poetic libretto written by Steve Vizard, and Jamie Oehlers on saxophone, this unique new work commissioned by Arts Centre Melbourne is sure to become a modern classic.
