Opera Australia cancels rarely-performed Verdi work in response to COVID-19

PLEASE NOTE: This event has been cancelled due to the government ban on mass gatherings during the COVID-19 pandemic

Yes, the King of the Huns. This early Verdi opera is about that Attila, and this is the first time it's being performed in Australia. This production by Davide Livermore uses both projections and massive set pieces (and two actual horses) to tell the story of Attila and the prisoner woman who changes him. Ukranian bass Taras Berezhansky stars as Attila alongside Australian opera star Natalie Aroyan as Odabella. They'll be conducted by Verdi specialist Andrea Licata.
