Ghost Light Opera
Ghost Light Opera will enable the experience of beautiful music to transcend from the stage of His Majesty’s Theatre and into your home wherever you are. A light – a ghost light – is left on the stage when the theatre is unoccupied and would otherwise be completely dark.
In a difficult environment with limited social gathering and isolation measures in place, West Australian Opera’s Ghost Light Opera will provide a platform for everyone to engage with the state opera company despite empty seats and closed venues.
Ghost Light Opera will celebrate Western Australian singers performing gorgeous arias spot lit on a darkened stage. We are proud to enable performing opportunities for soprano Emma Matthews, mezzo soprano Fiona Campbell, tenor Paul O’Neill and baritone James Clayton. Accompanied by Tommaso Pollio, these singers will take to the stage to share the arias people know and love.
We will release a Ghost Light Opera aria every Saturday at 7.30pm starting 28 March 2020 on WAO’s social media platforms.
