Featuring Emma Matthews in the title role, and conducted by Luke Spicer, this production will bring together artists from around Australia to share in the opera that made La Stupenda.
Venue | Llewellyn Hall
Purchase a seat so someone else can!
We are partnering with local charities to gift on a seat to Alcina. For every charitable seat purchased, National Opera will gift a second seat to charity, to provide someone in need, a night out to the opera.
Canberra Hospital Foundation
The first charity on board is the Canberra Hosopital Foundation. Canberra Hospital Foundation supports patients at any age, for any illness, from babies, children, teens to adults and the elderly, from those having treatment for cancer or chronic illness, to those recovering from injury, the vulnerable amongst us, and those peple nearing end of life.
