Underground Opera to fill the Sunshine Castle with music

FOLLOWING a successful West End to Broadway - In the Reservoir season in Brisbane, the Underground Opera Company's (UOC) next showcase will see a cast of world-class performers head to Bli Bli's Sunshine Castle for Opera in the Castle.

Led by UOC director and founder, Bruce Edwards, performers Mr Glenn Lorimer, Ms Dominique Fegan, Mr Lionel Theunissen and Ms Louise Dorsman will take the stage in the castle's Banquet Hall for intimate performances from March 18 - 20. UOC,

Australia's highest rated opera company on Ticketmaster, will perform its 12th season at the castle, which Mr Edwards said was the perfect location for a showcase of arias and duets from world famous operas.

"We've loved bringing our concerts to The Sunshine Castle, Bli Bli over the years and feel we are continuing to support an excellent tourist location, while ensuring arts continues to thrive in this part of south east Queensland," he said.

"The Sunshine Castle venue is awesome and performing in its Banquet Hall provides such an intimate environment for our guests.

With just 100 tickets available for each performance, we can ensure a wonderful evening of music that is also very personal.

" The concerts in Bli Bli are just one part of UOC's 2016 season. The company will head to Rockhampton's Capricorn Caves in May and November, with shows at Brisbane's historic Spring Hill Reservoir in May, August, November and December.

Since the company began in 2007, UOC has continued to source unique locations to perform, delighting audiences throughout Australia in barns, abandoned mines, caves and cane fields, with the list continuing to grow.

Discover the magic of UOC when it performs Opera in the Castle on Friday March 18 (7pm), Saturday March 19 (7pm) and Sunday March 20 (4pm). Tickets are from $49 - $79 and are available from Ticketmaster,
