The legendary tale of the sharp-shooting hero on a quest for freedom makes for grand opera: a struggle for liberty against oppression and the courage that victory demands.

One hundred and eighty-nine years after its Paris Opera debut, Rossini’s final masterwork, famed for its iconic overture, receives its Australian premiere. Epic opera demands epic staging and director Rodula Gaitanou (Royal Opera House, Opera Holland Park) and designer Simon Corder tackle Tell with grit and grandeur.

Hope illuminates a darkened world in this striking new production.
