Julia Migenes

Diva On The Verge

Star of opera, film, theatre and dance, Julia Migenes transcends all boundaries.

Universally loved for her starring role alongside Plácido Domingo in the award-winning film Carmen, she is regarded as one of the world’s favourite performers.

With a perfect mezzo-soprano voice, her opera repertoire includes leading roles in La Bohème and Madama Butterfly. She has starred in the Broadway musicals Fiddler on the Roof and West Side Story, and danced the title role in the Maurice Béjart ballet, Salomé.

Join her for a night of spine-tingling arias and frank and fabulous anecdotes, in an irreverent evening of sassy soprano-cabaret. With all the verve of a Broadway hit, Migenes draws on her glittering career to reveal the splendour, the drama and the passion of opera.

Diva on the Verge features arias from Roméo et Juliette, Otello, La Traviata, Lucia di Lammermoor and Tristan und Isolde, plus excerpts from Madama Butterfly, Salomé, La Bohème, Manon, and Die Walküre.

For opera fans, this is a refreshing and colourful insight into the genre you love. And for everyone else, Diva on the Verge is the perfect opera introduction.

Don’t miss this ultimate diva in her only Australian appearance - this is sophisticated, funny and exhilarating entertainment for all!
