A Chatswood Culture Bites Production present Willoughby Symphony in the Park

Experience stunning music from opera and Broadway when Guy Noble conducts the Willoughby Symphony Orchestra in highlights from Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Phantom of the Opera, Verdi’s Rigoletto and more.

Leading Australian soprano Julie Lea Goodwin enchants with exquisite music by Puccini and Dvořák and don’t miss star Australian tenor Mark Vincent singing Verdi’s famous La donna è mobile or the show-stopping aria Nessun Dorma.

Featuring classical hits from Mozart’s Marriage of Figaro, Dvorak’s Slavonic Dances and Bizet’s Carmen, this unforgettable concert comes to a champagne-popping climax with the rousing Brindisi from Verdi’s La traviata.
