Tonight I had the pleasure of attending the opening night of the Underground Opera’s latest show. West End to Broadway is a performance not to be missed held in the historic and architecturally astonishing Spring Hill Reservoir. Six meters underground, the reservoir is divided into 15 sections by headwalls, with each section joined by hand-lain brick archways, which have been standing for 140 years. The acoustics are sensational, allowing our performers’ voices to resonate throughout the venue, with each audience member enjoying the beautifully stunning sound that is created, no matter where they are seated. It is a truly intimate way to see a show. Our amazing performers this evening were Ana Marina, Lionel Theunissen, Louise Dorsman and Bradley McCaw. You can book your tickets through Ticketek Australia. I was also lucky enough to meet David Hinchliffe (former deputy Mayor of Brisbane turned painter), whom did a live painting throughout the show. The end result was amazing and the piece will be auctioned off to raise funds for RBWH.
