Shakira will return to the Victorian Opera cast in June to perform the role of the Cuckoo and ensemble in Respighi's Sleeping Beauty at Hobart's Dark Mofo Festival. Following from her position in Victorian Opera's Developing Artist program, Shakira is thrilled to return to the company in their 2017 season.

The transformative power of love takes centre stage as a cursed Princess awakens from an eternal sleep in a retelling of Perrault’s classic with fairies, fantasy and a cast of puppets. Italian composer Ottorino Respighi’s 1922 reimagining of The Sleeping Beauty is given new life in an unforgettable production. Ⓒ Victorian Opera
