Starring as leading lady, Magda, is Opera Australia principal artist, Lorina Gore. We are also excited to welcome the wonderful Henry Choo as Ruggero, Georgia Wilkinson as Lisette, Daniel Todd as Prunier and Adrian Tambourini as Rambaldo, to our principal cast for our inaugural production!

National Opera is also excited to collaborate with the School of Music at the Australian National University.
