OSCAR AND LUCINDA A wild and dreamy Australian love story reimagined as opera.
“Oscar and Lucinda” is the implausible and beautiful story of scar, a disenfranchised preacherʼs kid, and ucinda, an orphaned young heiress. When the two meet on a boat bound for colonialera Sydney, they are attracted by a mutual wildness and a penchant for risktaking, eventually embarking on a far-fetched dream to build a cathedral of pure glass and transport it across the desert. This story is now reimagined as a moving opera set within a suitably grand industrial venue From July 27. Carriageworks, 245 Wilson Street, Eveleigh. carriageworks.com.au
