Fly Away Peter

$30 – $48

Arts Centre Melbourne and Sydney Chamber Opera in association with Melbourne Festival present

Fly Away Peter

Based on David Malouf’s classic novel Fly Away Peter, this new contemporary opera tells the story of Jim Saddler, a visionary young birdwatcher from Queensland thrust into the nightmare of the Western Front during WWI.

Through Jim’s voice of delicate insight, this one act chamber opera travels from a land of life to a panorama of horror.

In honour of the Gallipoli centenary, this profound new contribution to Australian opera tells a story of the Australian spirit that begins at peace, builds to tragedy, and ends in transcendence.
