Myth meets modern woman in this contemporary reimagining of the Lorelei legend.

LORELEI
Concert Hall | QPAC
6 – 13 MARCH 2021
BOOK NOW oq.com.au

Three sirens of song – the Lorelei – sit atop the cliffs of the River Rhine enchanting sailors with their alluring songs. The Lorelei take no prisoners as sailors lose focus… and ultimately their lives on the rocks below.

But are the Lorelei growing tired of singing sailors to their deaths? Can they help being so irresistible?

Join Ali McGregor, Antoinette Halloran and Dimity Shepherd for this tantalising journey of self-discovery combining cabaret, burlesque and opera.

“…devastatingly entertaining.” The Herald Sun

Have you ever had a lover who was faithless?

The Lorelei did and in despair threw herself into the river and was transformed into a siren whose voice pulled men under her spell and onto the rocks.

In this new Australian work, the creators have taken this ancient mythical story and turned it on its head.

Are the Lorelei growing tired of singing sailors to their deaths? Find out in our first main stage production for 2021 where opera meets cabaret and burlesque.

Presented by Opera Queensland by arrangement with Victorian Opera.

Production contains coarse language and adult themes.
