Last chance to catch Opera Australia’s 2017 break-out hit Two Weddings, One Bride

October 5, 2017 Lifestyle No Comments Email Email

Opera Australia’s acclaimed new work Two Weddings, One Bride will bring its signature brand of musical silliness back to The Playhouse this October for a final two-week run.

After a successful premiere season earlier this year, Two Weddings, One Bride will return with a new leading lady, young star soprano Zoe Drummond, as scheming identical twin sisters Giroflé and Girofla. Up-and-coming tenor Michael Petruccelli will also join the cast, with musical theatre royalty Geraldine Turner, renowned comic baritone John Bolton Wood, charming tenor Nicholas Jones and baritone Andrew Jones returning to their acclaimed roles.

Created by highly respected conductor and musical director Robert Andrew Greene, this production is unlike anything Opera Australia has ever staged before, with costumes by Priscilla Queen of the Desert’s Oscar Award-winning designer Tim Chappel and directed by Anything Goes and The Rocky Horror Show’s Dean Bryant.

Loosely based on a story by Charles Lecocq, Greene’s creation delivers plenty of laughs and beautiful music with some of the world’s most-loved tunes and favourite operetta waltzes, polkas and songs by Strauss, Offenbach, Lehár and Kálmán.

Set in the exotic surrounds of Morocco, Greene has drawn on the winning formula of combining musical greatest hits with a quirky and entertaining story, in a similar vein to jukebox musicals like Mamma Mia.

With a plot that twists and turns, a fiscally challenged Governor finds himself in a little too deep and the creditors are nipping at his well-shod heels. But marrying off his twin daughters to just the right suitors could save his bacon.
