OSCAR AND LUCINDA

CARRIAGEWORKS AND SYDNEY CHAMBER OPERA PRESENT

OSCAR AND LUCINDA

A CO-PRODUCTION AND CO-COMMISSION OF SYDNEY CHAMBER OPERA, OPERA QUEENSLAND AND VICTORIAN OPERA

WORLD PREMIERE

Composer Elliott Gyger reunites with librettist Pierce Wilcox to transform Peter Carey’s beloved novel Oscar and Lucinda into a new Australian opera. Directed by the internationally acclaimed Patrick Nolan, the work reimagines the love story between the orphaned proto-feminist industrialist and the man who believes he is touched by God. Having nothing in common – except their addiction to gambling, Oscar and Lucinda find each other in colonial-era Sydney with a wild dream: to build a cathedral of pure glass, and walk it into the Australian outback.
