Alchemy and Adventure: New Ways of Making Music Theatre
Where will the next big thing in opera or music theatre emerge from? In the digital age it seems the composer-led tradition is fast being usurped by creative teams seeking to capture audiences' imagination in a myriad ways - with recycled classics; cross-genre experiments; projects fusing film, cabaret and theatre with new music; performed concept albums; and musicians of all stripes "dabbling" in opera.
It's entertaining, but is it art?
Alchemy and Adventure will include live performance and will be moderated by ABC Radio National's Sarah Kanowski with guest panellists including three Brisbane-based Artistic Directors focussed on the future of music theatre: Kris Stewart (Brisbane Powerhouse), Lindy Hume (Opera Queensland) and Robert Davidson (Topology).
Alchemy and Adventure is the second in the series of talks throughout 2013 as part of OperaQ Studio’s program The Space Between.
