Opera meets country music in this celebration of the power of song and the freedom of living life, true to your dreams

Are You Lonesome Tonight is a celebration of Opera and Country music, featuring arias and songs by Puccini, Verdi, Slim Dusty, Troy Cassar-Daley and Dolly Parton to name just a few.

Featuring a cast of three of Australia’s finest young singers including Irena Lysiuk, Marcus Corowa and Jonathan Hickey, Are You Lonesome Tonight celebrates all that Opera and Country music have in common - artists, composers and librettists across both artforms understand the power of storytelling sharing many common themes of profound love, heartache, and triumph in the face of adversity.

Are You Lonesome Tonight marks Opera Queensland’s 40th anniversary with the most extensive tour in the company’s history, visiting nearly 30 communities around Queensland.

Come in your jeans and boots or your tuxedos and ballgowns – this is opera at its most diverse, accessible and exciting!

Are You Lonesome Tonight is proudly supported by Beef Australia.
