Operatic works by the likes of Puccini, Verdi and Mozart will be performed against the spectacular backdrop of tall tingle trees and the Tree Top Walk when the WA Opera returns to the Valley of the Giants in December.
The WA Opera at the Valley of the Giants concert on December 1 will feature Paul O’Neill, Mark Alderson, Ashlyn Timms and Katja Webb, accompanied by Tommaso Pollio.
It has a “Concert for Conservation” theme, with part proceeds going to research into the effects of the 2015 bushfire in nearby Northcliffe on quokka populations and habitat management.
Tickets are $32.60 per adult and include a shuttle from Denmark and Walpole. Picnic hampers with local produce are available from The Lake House Denmark. See waopera.asn.au.
An Arias and Lights accommodation package is also available.
