Opera Queensland | Do We Need Another Hero?
7 June @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
One event on 7 June 2024 at 7:30 pm
From the creative team behind Are You Lonesome Tonight and Lady Sings the Maroons, Opera Queensland embark on another epic adventure across regional Queensland with our new production Do We Need Another Hero?
This live musical tribute stars some of Queensland’s best talent, taking us on a journey through the history of heroism. From Hercules to Hamlet; Wonder Woman to the working-class man (and woman) this show balances joyful observation and thoughtful discourse, asking audiences the question: in a world connected yet divided, Who’s Gonna Save Us?
Chart-topping anthems about bravery and heroism from artists like The Beatles, Bowie and Bizet soundtrack our story as we search for what it means to be a hero. Within the archives of great music, we uncover profound truths, unravelling answers one note, one rhythm, one song at a time and discover that true heroes are not confined to comic books; they can be found in the lyrics and melodies that inspire us.
