Albury’s Peter Ludorf helps to set up the stage for Opera in the Alps at the Beechworth Golf Club yesterday. Picture: JOHN RUSSELLTHE night won’t be complete until 150 performers sing at tomorrow night’s Opera in the Alps, which will be held on the 18th fairway of the Beechworth Golf Course.
A change of venue was decided on Wednesday, after concerns heavy rainfall this week could cause the stage to sink into Baarmutha Park.
Despite the last minute move next door, Director of Opera in the Alps Graeme Wall said the event was shaping up to be a great night.
“We have already sold more than 3000 tickets,” Mr Wall said.
“We have been really pleased to have so many pre-sold and there is still room for people to roll up, but it is better to book ahead because you get a better position.
“The weather is also looking perfect, you might even need a cardigan.”
This year the performers include David Hobson, Silvie Paladino and the Opera Scholars Australia.
The 100-voice choir will return alongside the Alpha Sinfonia Orchestra, led by conductor Guy Noble.
Mr Wall said organisers were also keen to try something new this year.
“Guy Noble himself is a very big drawcard, he is well known and a favourite with the audience,” he said.
“There will also be a lovely surprise ending, I won’t say what it is but it might involve the audience.
“We haven’t done this before, so it will be interesting.”
World-renowned soprano Yvonne Kenny won’t be performing but she has spent the past week providing guidance and inspiration for 30 young opera singers.
Among the musical talent on the night, a feast of local produce and wine will be on offer.
Mr Wall said the golfers had been “very accommodating”.
