Miss Brill - Ben Hoadley & Craig Bush with Omega Ensemble

Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney, Sydney, NSW

The Omega Ensemble presents the Australian premiere of New Zealand composer Ben Hoadley’s chamber opera Miss Brill. From the short story by Katherine Mansfield, with a libretto by Craig Brush, the opera reveals a day in the life of a lonely spinster, Miss Brill, living in a seaside town in provincial France in the 1920s, her love of music and fragile determination to remain optimistic despite the harshness of the world around her. Along with music by Glinka and Beethoven, this will be a memorable night of varied musical styles.
