Songs To Die For
Friday 2 August
All Tickets $45.00

Presented by Ipswich Civic Centre and Opera Queensland
It’s no secret that opera has death nailed.
At the heart of some of opera’s greatest moments, you’ll find a knife, bullet or poison paired with some of the most sublime music ever written. For 400 years, death has inspired iconic composers and beclouded modern legends; Kurt Cobain, Amy Winehouse and Janis Joplin whose songs speak as passionately to us as the music of their operatic counterparts.
Songs To Die For is a cheeky nod to the over-dramaticised deaths of opera’s leading characters masterfully entwined with pop classics. Presented by three of Opera Queensland’s leading artists, Songs To Die For is a celebration of the end brought to vivid life in a night where Don Giovanni meets Highway to Hell.
