From April 2024, Opera Queensland will embark on another epic adventure spanning over 20 locations across regional Queensland, with our new production Do We Need Another Hero?
Do We Need Another Hero? is a joyful celebration of songs about bravery and heroism. From pop to opera, country to classical, this live musical tribute features chart-topping anthems and unique mashups that will have you dancing in your seat.
Timeless hits about bravery and heroism from artists like The Beatles, David Bowie, John Farnham and more, intertwine with opera classics from composers like Beethoven and Bizet to provide the soundtrack for our story as we search for what it means to be a hero. Exploring the musical archives, we discover that not all heroes wear capes.
From the creative minds behind Are You Lonesome Tonight and Lady Sings the Maroons, this new musical showcases Queensland’s fnest talent including Marcus Corowa, Luke Volker, Jason Barry-Smith, Ruby Clark and Shikara Ringdahl. Sing along with these artists as they take songs you know and love and weave them into a story for the whole family.
Do We Need Another Hero? believes that each person possesses a unique superpower, and grand acts of courage need not always make headlines. This show will delight and encourage you to refect on the idea that everyone can be a hero, if only for a day.
