„Ariadne auf Naxos“ at the Lisa Gasteen National Opera School

Founded in 2011 by Australien soprano Lisa Gasteen AO, the National Opera School offers developing Australian singers world class training and career development preparing them to be competitive when studying or working abroad. It is Australia's leading program for such elite training. In December 2018, the students prepare their own professional opera production: two performances of „Ariadne auf Naxos“ by Richard Strauss are scheduled for 9 and 11 December 2018 in Brisbane. Simone Young, who has been working with Lisa Gasteen for many years, takes over the musical direction.
