William Tell, Victorian Opera

Bastille Day French Festival has secured an exclusive special sneak-peek at the 1st Act in a general dress rehearsal of Rossini’s masterwork William Tell, presented by the Victorian Opera for the first time in Australia for 140 years. Befitting an epic opera, this will be the largest production Victorian Opera has ever staged with the greatest international contingent, the biggest chorus (48 members) and the most costumes created for a single production. It will be epic in all senses of the word. So, if there’s one operatic event you want to be there for in 2018, it’s William Tell. Join us for Champagne and macarons in the foyer of the newly renovated Palais Theatre before a pre-performance talk by Conductor and Victorian Opera Artistic Director Richard Mills.

Wednesday 11 July - 5:30 At The Palais Theatre, St Kilda $30 (Full Performance)
