Baroque music is set to 21st-century words to tell of Astolfo’s journey to the Moon, negotiating supernatural beings and a love triangle, in the hope of restoring his friend’s sanity.

Voyage to the Moon is co-presented with Victoria Opera, and in partnership with the Performance Program of the Australian Research Council's Centre of Excellence for the History of Emotions, led by Jane Davidson with Alan Maddox (Associate Investigator). This tour is supported by the Musica Viva Amadeus Society.

Brisbane concerts presented in association with Opera Queensland.
