While opera is actually anything but boring, it is an acquired taste – until now. Opera Australia has turned the traditional formula on its head with The Marriage of Figaro, coming to The Arts Centre Gold Coast from July 20–22 to bring together core elements of the genre with a distinctly modern twist. more
