King Roger

Conducted by Andrea Molino
Directed by Kasper Holten
Revival direction by Matthew Barclay

Shakira is thrilled to be making her professional debut with Opera Australia as a member of the chorus in this new production of Szymanowski's Król Roger.

Watching his wife dance under the stranger's spell, King Roger struggles with his own passions: choosing between the sacred love he knows and the sensuous, glittering realm of hedonism the shepherd preaches.

Szymanowski's intoxicating, iridescent music is rarely heard on the opera stage, so don't miss this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to hear a 20th-century Polish masterpiece.
