Cover story- Siobhan Stagg- Magic to Do. The young Australian soprano, currently based in Berlin, is about to make her debut for Glyndebourne Festival and Opera Australia as Pamina in Mozart's Die Zaubuerfl te - a role she has already played at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden. Last seen in Australia at the 2020 Adelaide Festival in Romeo Castellucci's Requiem, we talk to her about her career to date, how she coped with the coronavirus pandemic, and the magic ahead.
Feature- A sporting chance for the arts. What can the arts learn from sport in terms of advocacy, management, and audience development? We investigate a number of successful, international partnerships between arts companies and sports clubs, as the two worlds collaborate and share information about a road map back to live events.
Article- Opera had a big influence on the early era of film, from opera music accompanying silent films, to operas as silent films and then 'talkies', to the big stars of the period, such as Enrico Caruso and Geraldine Farrar, who crossed both genres. We analyse its impact on the development of the big screen.
Reviews- our experienced critics cover the latest concerts, operas, plays and musicals, including the Australian production of the phenomenally successful rap musical Hamilton.
