The opera will return to the historic timber town of Jarrahdale when exclusive international opera artists Greta Bradman, Rosario La Spina, José Carbó and Milijana Nikolic descend upon the town on March 23.

The talented quartet will serenade patrons with a special performance, Opera at the Mill.

The town of Jarrahdale has a long history with the opera after The Opera Bouffe Company paid two visits in 1885 before returning in January 1886.

Now, more than 120 years later, four impressive opera singers will perform some of the biggest opera numbers including 'The Barber of Seville', 'Rossini' and 'The Phantom of the Opera', surrounded by forest at the Jarrahdale Heritage Mill.

Stunning soprano Greta Bradman, granddaughter of famous cricketer Sir Donald Bradman, is one of Australasia’s most celebrated operatic and concert artists, having recently released new album 'Home' in 2018.

Her 2015 debut album received five-star reviews and topped the classical and classical crossover ARIA charts for several months.

Rosario La Spina made his Opera Australia debut in 2005 and his American debut in 2007, after which he also performed in Canada, Taiwan, New Zealand, and Japan.

His 2010 Universal duo release 'Always You' shot to the top of the classical charts in Australia.

Serbian-born Milijana Nikolic, who performed with La Spina in Opera Australia’s Aida, made her operatic debut in the Belgrade National Theatre and has gone on to perform in New York, Spain, Japan, the United States, Bergamo, Sardinia, Hong Kong, and Korea.

The final performer, Argentine-Australian baritone José Carbó is one of the most exciting operatic artists of his generation.

Carbó has performed in the leading houses of the world including Teatro alla Scala, Teatro Real Madrid, Los Angeles Opera, Teatro dell’Opera di Roma, Seattle Opera and Opera Australia.

An event not to be missed, Opera at the Mill will be held at the Jarrahdale Heritage Mill on Millars Road on March 23.
