It's all about the Opera at The Channon
VAVACHI is the Brisbane-based company in charge of the music and entertainment at this year's Opera at The Channon.
The troupe's director, tenor Roger Davy, confirmed this year's music program will include a mix of musical theatre and opera, with emphasis in entertaining the audience.
Mr Davy will be joined by three other performers during the two-hour show: Sopranos Nicole Simone and Meg Kiddle plus tenor Iain Henderson.
"We will take people on a journey from some of the best songs from Broadway, with excerpts from Phantom of the Opera, Le Miserables and My Fair Lady," he said.
"After that we will transition towards opera.
"We will be performing some songs and arias from Tosca, the Flower Duet from La Boheme and Nessun Dorma from Turandot.
"After that I will be performing my Pavarotti tribute, a show that will look into the singer's music but also his persona, in good humour and with lots of entertainment for the audience."
Mr Davy was a surprise act a couple of years ago as The Singing Waiter.
Opera at The Channon will be held on Sunday, July 26, at Coronation Park.
Gates will open at 11am and performances will commence at 1.30pm.
Opera buffs and guests are encouraged to dress formally.
Prizes will be awarded for the best picnic table, best dressed man and lady and the most senior person.
If wet weather prevents the event from proceeding at Coronation Park, the event will be held at The Pavilion, at Lismore Showground.
Tickets can be booked from www.opera atthechannon.com.au or from Planet Music, 25 Molesworth St, Lismore.
