From the Melbourne Herald Sun:
OPERA and pole dancing will make an unlikely match in a contemporary take on the classic La Traviata to be performed at table top dancing venue The Men’s Gallery from Saturday.
Award winning Opera Australia director Julie Edwardson says taking the classic tale out of the theatre and presenting the story in a real-life contemporary setting should appeal to a broader audience….
As part of the mission to engage a new and younger audience to experience opera the shows are free to under 25’s.
Desperate? It’s full-frontal opera fail.
