What could be more perfect than an outdoor concert of opera favorites at the historic Dundullimal Homestead on a beautiful autumn afternoon in Dubbo? Music lovers will be delighted when the Macquarie Conservatorium and Dundullimal Homestead join forces for the return of Opera at Dundullimal, a beautiful outdoor event. Members of the public will have the opportunity to enjoy the historic property – a National Trust property – and relax with a picnic in the grounds while being entertained with a fine line-up of music which begins with the Macquarie Big Band performing catchy tunes. Next are opera singers Rebecca Collins, Rachael Duncan and Rohan Thatcher from Canberra, and pianist and Macquarie Conservatorium director Vivienne Winther, in a program of opera excerpts from around the world. Joining them this year is Geurie’s young tenor, Nathan Bryon, who began his vocal studies at Dubbo’s Macquarie Conservatorium with Opera Australia soprano Dawn Walsh. Mr. Bryon pursued graduate studies in voice at the Sydney Conservatorium and is now a Melba Opera Trust and Joan Sutherland and Richard Bonynge Foundation Scholar. Mr Bryon said it was a “magnificent event” and it was “really special to hear this repertoire” locally. “I think the regional audience has a really special energy and really appreciates the arts. Without having as much access as you have in the city, people are really grateful to have these experiences.” He said he was delighted to perform in his hometown with artists he first met while a student at the Macquarie Conservatorium.

He added: “I think people will have a wonderful experience.” Ms Winther said: “What’s really special about this event is the setting; you can enjoy your favorite opera moments while relaxing with friends over a picnic, in the beautiful estate of Dundullimal Homestead.” Opera in Dundullimal takes place on Sunday 15th May at Dundullimal Homestead, with doors open from 12.30pm and an opera concert from 2pm.
